Through it all, despite everything

(1842)  Shudhai ni nam ke jena balilo

I did not ask the name; did someone say
That to my house You are coming.
Having heard, I'd understood: finally
You are thinking about me.

Vanished has the time, year after year;
So many autumn evenings, they have disappeared!
Dew-drenched, night-jasmine have been crying
Upon roads with name unknown aplenty.

An age has sailed away on an epoch's heels,
And what am I keeping upon mirror of my psyche?
Rainstorm and hurricane, after disregarding,
Remains the image of Yourself, lovingly.
