Now that You've appeared

(2035)  Path bhule jadi

When the path having forgot,
You arrived at my place,
Then even if You do not want,
You will have to stay.

No lamp was lit, no garland threaded;
On Your altar I laid not a tray of flowers.
Only the mind had wanted, it had cherished;
Thus mayhap You came to be gracious.

Never more will I let You leave;
On my heart, a fastened latch will I keep.
In smiles and tears, gladness and sadness, and in grief,
Mad will I stay, Yourself always to see.
