Because I'm so tiny

(1817)  Tumi bhule gecho more

You have gone and forgotten me;
What's the reason, tell me kindly.
Even though I am paltry, myself You have sent
To this Earth, upon it to be.

I am not the sun-and-moon, nor planet or meteor,
Or nebula made up of stars by the many thousands.
I am just a puny flower-bud;
Keep me clinging to Your feet.

I am not the vast ocean, nor a massive glacier,
Or a misty current come floating from the firmament.
I am just a tiny dewdrop, ringed by hot conflagration;
Please watch over me, graciously.
