If not for Thee...

(1785)  Katha kaye gele tumi kane kane

The words You went on saying privately...
In a heart bent by the weight of agony,
They animate with songs aplenty!

There had been not anyone grasping my pain;
No one had even time to hear the tale.
Nobody looked on with a heedful grace;
All walked away, unmindfully.

Silently, secretly, You were of consequence;
Filling mind with delight, to me You uttered:
"You are not at all solitary on this earth;
Heart to heart, I keep company."
