What matters

(183)  Ganer jagat kache peyechi

The world of song I've found nearby;
To oblivion the old life I've consigned.
I've gained You, everything I've acquired;
All childplay I've set aside.

The moth, she races toward a lamp;
She does not realize that she flies to death's visage.
Consciousness having forgot, staying with inert matter,
Verily, that is death; I have come to understand.

I will go ahead, hurrying in Your direction;
In the song of You only, I will stay absorbed.
For each and every want, each and every acquisition,
The last word is 'You're the essence', I have learned.
