Love is my Beloved

(1582)  Nayaner mani hiiraker khani

Jewel of the eyes,[1] a diamond mine,
The purest sandalpaste in Paradise,
For You, there is no come or go, no wane or decay;
The sea of love's dominance, You are its range.

In which bygone time had You smiled inside of psyche?
Nowhere is that found in theory or in writing.
I only know that You exist, You are holding dear;
Excluding You, worthless is my everything.

You are in the fire and the wind, and in the blue azure,
In the planet and the star, and in the black collyrium.
A jeweled sweetness, suffusing affection,
You have scattered far and wide, beyond all measure.
