Still bound by samsara

(189)  Duhkhera sathii tumi sukhera bandhu tumi

You are pleasure's friend and grief's companion;
Please don't hide me from Eye's vision.
In waterfalls of laughter or in tears of affliction,
Please don't render me abandoned.

Through many a dance-cadence, do preserve my garland;
Mid the colored flowers, see a basket[1] I've adorned.
Smiling gently, coming near, lovingly carry me,
Please don't ever be loath or displeased.

What You want me to give, even though I am not able,
That which I can, don't disdain it!

  1. Though I remain unworthy, though I still can't pay the price, take me with You anyway.
