My tour of duty is complete

(1826)  Sajaye rekhechi malika

Arrayed I have kept a garland,
Hey my Dear, for Your assignation.
I can be slain, yes, I am ephemeral;
But my love is deathless, like essence of nectar.

Any tune or longing that had been,
Whatever had been the concept or expression,
I've placed all of them inside a necklace of resin
With Your jingling timbre, grave but gently pleasant.

I am just a tiny grain of Your kindness;
I descend within a gush of gold effulgence.
Now I've been sanctified; I am free of color...
Graciously pick me up and lift me above.
