Please make me understand

(1868)  Tomay chilum bhule ami

Yourself I had been forgetting,
For how many lifetimes I know not,
Even just to count them, I cannot.
Why did You not rid the blunder;
Won't You say it in a whisper?

How much light of day has passed;
How much black of night has overcast?
How many suns, having sunk,
How many moonbeams did come?

Abiding Friend, You know everything;
And You entice everyone with lovestrings.
So why then, after taking me,
The making of diverting sports?

  1. Why did I get distracted; why did You allow it? In fact, why did You make it happen; and how much was Your grace while I slept?
