You fulfill me

(2131)  Tumi esechile bhalabesechile, amar mane mane madhu kuinjavane

You had arrived, and You'd held dear
Within my psyche at a garden bower sweet.
Unto Thee none called out, nor poured she love;
A song she made not heard in every ear.

Oh You know how to smile, You know how to like;
With songs aplenty, You entice remote ones near.

No one is Your unrelated, everyone is kindred;
On collarbone of all You hang affection's necklace.
The person who attains You, everything she gains;
Heart to heart, she stays integrated with everybody.

Rising on the sea

(2130)  Graha tara ghore tomare ghire

Stars and planets spin round Thee,
Only waves of the sea intermittently,
Only waves of the sea intermittently.
Mind's peacock call to You when lone
Is to obtain, fantail dancing.

Atoms and molecules in bosom of celestial sphere,
They caper with great pleasure to rhythm and beat.
Whatever I am getting, whatever I got not,
In everything mind searches for Thee.

What was near, what went elsewhere,
Due to them even still mind reels.
They all dwell within just You;
Dressed in liila You are keeping.

Our secret meeting...

(2129)  Tomay amay gopan dekha

Between Yourself and me a secret meeting,
Lover, it will be at alcove of the mind.
No one will know, no one will see;
Mentally, nobody will realize.

In flowered garb You'll arrive
At effusive heart's inside...
Along with moon on moonlit night,
Like paradise with light on light.

About You any small bit I conceive,
It can't be caught in thought or speech.
Beyond all language, beyond thinking,
You come furtively; is that the reason why?

I am Yours

(2128)  Kena esechile kena cale gele

What for had You come; what for did You leave?
What for You departed, throwing love away?
In a shoot of grass on looking glass of psyche,
You decamped, a rosy hope having kept traced.

Not a thing You ever wanted;
Nothing You gave me to manage.
You had said: "Go on doing work today,
Far-off having cast despair."

With You have I remained, always do I stay;
Evening and morning, welfare I contemplate.
Take as known that You are my darling;
Getting me is not a hope that's vain.

I was not alone, never unaccompanied;
Ever with love You have kept enveloping.
Cross the length of time, with sweet subtlety,
Only Your grace I beseech.

My Abiding Friend since time immemorial,
I know You are everyone's Most Precious.
Nonetheless I deem You as mine only...
I dress in the manner You adorn me;
In Your form and color I am dancing.

Yourself You've conferred.
Just Your path adhering to,
Reciting name of only You,
We press onward,
Singing but Your song.

Upon the advent of just You,
With removal of the gloom,
What was the night's dread,
It has come to an end.

There's not any obstruction,
Nor any hesitation to set forth.

Even though minuscule, please regard the molecule.
With micro-pain is Macro's wound;

Darling, what You will, that alone please do;
Only please take me along with You.
The heart's secret is its huge solicitude;
Hiding it neath web of words does not succeed.

At heart's core a beat You bring.

On an autumn night, bright and clear,
In solitude I've wanted Thee.
This wish, my Dear, can be fulfilled,
By a tiny smidgen of Your kindness.
I've not force, not the strength,
Hence, candidly, I go on begging grace;
There is no claim that's worthy.

When the way was obstructed, oh Store of Compassion,
Both You gave: the constraint and salvation.
Under Your protection through mantra's magic,
Upon Your avenue I will proceed.

In the hands of humankind, so little is there;
The universe has moved by Your mercy.
Oh, a speck of compassion, he who has received,
In this world, he has gotten everything.

Never is someone among us unaccompanied;

With joy of life by just His grace,
Forward only do we gaze.

On goal's journey, it's allowance for expense, that only.

Sensate or insensate, everything that's been alive,
It has gone on dancing inside of Your mind.
Everyone is within You, within all You too reside;

Each word spoken, and every affliction in You lie hidden.
Per Your liking You give rules and regulations;
On our side, we only entreat.

Hey Master of everyone, unstained and unbodied;
You ignite welfare's splendor at core of my being.
Any mistake I have made, any wrong path I have walked,
On this day itself, You retract my that disgrace.

At the feast of life, enough work is there.
Many enemies exist; banished they must be
With firm belief and expectation steady.

I had been forgetting You, with matter mixing;
But in the end, You conveyed sensibility.
Through a human base, You made me perceive;
The speed of my return is what You achieved.

There was no capacity, and there was no enterprise.
Now I see that eyes get opened when there's mercy;

I did not beg to approach, nor invited to sit;
I did not make welcome under the awning.

You arrived uninvited, unbid You appeared;
Stealthily You penetrated my mental spinney.
Smiling sweetly, yet not uttering a mite,
You became engaged in flower-gathering.

Why You go on playing games with the mind.
In my grove, privately only with me,
Through love-vibration, You give a swing.

That I've retained on memory's fabric.

And that same vital force, laminating with affection.
Going back over the memory amid flowers of psyche,

At the very core of me I have found Thee;
So many days I've sought in vain externally!
Alone in private, at mind's place hard to reach,
I've achieved all aspiration.

See me

(2086)  Eso amar aro kache

Come to me yet more near;
Stay concealed within psyche.
Say nothing, no pain is there;
I'm not asking You to speak.

I keep doing Your work only;
I call Thee incessantly.
I cram Your paean with vitality,
In joy and grief so You but heed.

This penance is without an end;
I would dismiss all of the darkness.
Still aroused is just one wish:
Flash a glance at me.

Beneath Earth's beauty

(2085)  Tumi esechile kauke na bale

You had come without telling anyone;
Then You went with no intimation.
Mine were still more songs...
Still more songs were there for singing,
With more cadence, more musical measure.

I could not imagine
You will come in such manner...
Or that You will leave like this,
Casting me away in tears.

In all the dirt of the earth,
Flowers unfold by the hundreds.
Within their unblown buds,
You left honey bequeathed.

It is an emergency

(2084)  Uttunga shikhara pare

Upon a summit very lofty,
Are You seated for somebody's sake?
Dust-covered is humanity;
Please do come down, post-haste.

Human beings have forgotten they are human;
They have feigned sky lanterns on imaginary heavens.
In self-centered thought they have lost their senses;
You please come awaken them.

At Your fore, certainly there are not two courses;
Saving Your created earth is that which just must happen.
The time of Your descent, it has mattered;
With Your own hand, take the helm of this ship.

Your path is an inner journey

(2083)  Ami deshe deshe anek ghurechi

Enough have I rambled from place to place;
Yourself having sought, I did not attain.
Sufficient scripture-study have I made;
But intuition I could not awake.

All my intellect and learning is only by Your mercy;
By Your grace success and fortune I achieve.
A bloom will flower in the desert if You but wish it to be,
And it will make the earth filled with a scent that is sweet.

We are all of us Your ball to play with;
We go on working in the dreamland of Your will.
If Your path get lost, ourselves we miss,
In an instant with dust we get mixed.

All the time

(2082)  Ei jyotsna nishiithe canderi mayate

On this moonlit midnight, under the moon's magic,
I have wanted You, oh the One-Of-A-Kind.
Whether You like or not, I do not know it;
I know only that You are incessantly mine.

My wanting and gaining are trivial to Thee,
But they are of boundless worth to me.
Hope having fulfilled, come within my psyche;
Kindly convert the hope into mind's delight.

Come You with smiling face, remain in joy and grief;
My staying alive, with light-rays make replete.
You are my Dearest, at both good and bad times.
