The story of a lifetime

(1426)  Tandra jarima chilo ankhipate

On eyelids was drowsiness-fatigue;
Earth was drenched with rain falling.
You had come, light in the darkness,
To cram satisfaction into ineffectual existence.

Even now I can't forget the story of that day;
In my life's history, nothing does compare.
At an easy pace You came, then went far aside;
You left memory's line behind on that honeyed night.

How many ages have gone by, I have forgotten;
I have not retained all the springs and autumns.
In my mind is just that one and same story:
I had gained You in my company exclusively.
