Show Yourself

(2365)  Tomare ceye tomari kache

Having wanted You, only Your presence,
To an unknown place my days are sailing.
Golden are those days but can't be saved
In golden cage of my psyche.

Yourself I adore, so You alone I appraise;
In thought of You I survive night and day.
Contemplating You, experience of Yourself,
My mind longs to gain peace within Thee.

Behind matter have elapsed ages aplenty,
And many days of this brief life are passing.
Master, no more delay, there's not much time;
Please display Your kind mercy.

I don't want to hold You here

(2364)  Nandanavane ese cale gele

At a pleasure grove You arrived and then left,
Whereto, please say where.
Graciously, embrace You'd granted;
Gone away, day passes in tears.

Had You not granted embrace, it's a kindness;
Who has power that will make You held?
Those abrim with egotism fall down bent and broken;
They don't find peace in the least.

Dearest, You are equanimity's foundation;
You keep purging all the gloom of infatuation.
Mid thunderclaps, in hurricane and tempest,
Coruscates Your light-beam.

A mystery

(2363)  Na janiye esechile

Unannounced You'd appeared;
You departed without warning.
Your love, the song immortal,
Around Earth, You did fling.

World You've formed out of love;
Unique is the affection.
Amity's boundless ocean,
You keep playing hide-and-seek.

With song You filled up psyche;
You drove wild with tunes aplenty.
The three realms[1] You set a-swaying,
Making fall ambrosia heavenly.

You are my only sunshine

(2362)  Tomar asar tithi bhule gechi

I have forgotten the date of Your coming;
I forgot You not, my Darling.
Flowers of Your garland have dropped off;
Unshed was the sweetness of the wreath.

With You that nectar You had brought,
You'd poured it out amid heart-core.
With just its bliss in every pore,
The dance of existence did not cease.

In this same birth You arrive and depart;
You shower honey on the light and the dark.
Giving the mind sway, You laugh and mark;
In past I did not grasp this history.

Adorn my love

(2361)  Ankhir taray theko tumi priya

In eye's pupil, You please stay, Love,
Near to me night and day;
May there be no fear of Your loss
Amid the storm or hurricane.

In sorrow and grief, in mourning's utter pain,
Under a wasteland-heat, red with rage,
Relief I do not crave, listening in case
Your ankle-bells play.

I have affection, I want nothing, Love;
Please let there be sweetness at heart's core.
With that sweetness may be granted an embrace,
Fondness charmingly arrayed.

His bliss is contagious

(2360)  Jiivan asave chanda tumi

In the wine of existence, You are rhythm,
Sweet and gentle touch of love.
In flower-buds, You're aroma,
Hymn sent upward without reservation.

All want to get close to Thee,
To go with You, in Your company.
Thinking of You, in thought of You only,
Does anyone not get satisfaction!

You are waiting at the root of everybody,
On a riverbank with affection heavenly.
On nights of new moon gloom or of moonlit gleam,
Overflowing exudes Your elation.

My hopes and dreams...

(2359)  Paye dhare paye dhare vinati kari

Catching feet, catching feet, I entreat:
Please don't go, You, please don't go.
Many a day I'd been waiting for Your coming,
Please don't tear my bud of hope.

The tree that had been watered,
Had risen full of fruit, buds, and flowers.
Muse on it, think about its emotions;
Fruitless don't let it devolve.

From crimson dawn to blushing dusk,
Each moment's passed in just Your thought.
Don't dash those hopes of mine with dejection;
Make them fruitful by holy effort.

Next life I will do better

(2358)  Puspe puspe tomari madhurii

In every bloom is just Your sweetness;
Nectar oozes from each pollen spore.
Upon mind's mirror You I did not search for,
Who binds all with the string of love.

Filled with honey, You are vastly pleasing;
On the earth You have poured affection's heap.
Remaining inattentive at my crude, remote region,
Yourself to my home I failed to summon.

Even when I forgot, You did not forget;
Behind the screen of eyes, me You did not neglect.
Absorbed in my thoughts, seated in seclusion,
On that alone I now brood, revisiting oft.

Courage of my existence

(2357)  Phul bale deke se priiti pratiike

Loudly a bloom proclaims: "By that symbol of love
Breast filled I'll let be kept!
The frowns of thunderbolt or insects by the thousands,
From any event I won't tremble in dread.

Day comes and goes in only His reverie;
Night thickens with only His beauty.
Having forgotten Him, lost the rhythm,
To survive I'll not be able.

My life revolves around just Him,
With only His memory at each instant.
In that sweetness, on that speck of sheen,
I will go on floating every moment.

Of Thee I sing

(2356)  Tomar tare jiivan bhare, geye gechi jata gan

Because of You life is filled;
Whatever song I've gone on singing,
Heart-core's anguish is my story,
Keepsake of existence needy.

I know not, the time to listen,
If You have or don't have it.
And yet blown is a bud of hope;
Like dew a pearl is dangling.

This prayer, my tale, please do hear,
Anxiety in lyric speech;
Of You and me, of You and me,
Ours is unbreakable unity–
Love's pull, awakened let it be.

Please come close

(2355)  Ogo priya balte paro

Darling Dear, oh can You speak:
What's the reason You stay hiding?
The world's light is in Your beauty;
Why then fog do You smear?

Those who ask for You in meditation,
To tell privately a narration,
Their tale taken in consideration,
Why don't You appear?

Everyone's Beloved, everyone's very own,
Novel for eternity, that is You alone.
Of You not a thing is old;
With new fondness do call please.

He is unique

(2354)  Kusuma kanane madhura svanane

In a flower-garden, with pleasing reverberation,
Fragrance You have furnished fully.
You've dispensed heart's distillate of nectar immense,
Swimming cross an ocean of sudden jeopardy.

Lavishly, all You gave with hand smeared by affection;
For Yourself in exchange, You asked no string of offerings.
You've remained kissing the sky, above everything,
Upon knees I bow before Thee.

Within eyes a boundless smile, on lower lip a magic reed,
As if to say: "I love everybody wholeheartedly",
You consume the mass of darkness in all souls abiding.
One's own like You is no one else;
Everybody dances around Thee.

One without a second

(2353)  Bhuvane bholale manke raunale

The world You enticed, mind You made bright;
Unparalleled, Peerless One.
Everyone wants to receive You in their heart;
Sweetest One, You are the Sweetest One.

With moon and star, with nebula of faraway location,
And with the person close at hand mid ocular fog,
You are with everyone, You dance in rhythm and beat,
Dearest, Dearest, Dearest One.

Your light flashes in a mental room studded with gems,
Mid thunderbolts with aerolites, tempests with strong winds.
You smile in floral pollen, everybody holds You dear;
You are my Deity, my Intimate Lord,
Nearest, Nearest One.

My Lover is unique

(2352)  Maner gahane saroruha vane

In mental depths at lotus bower,
That same bee,[1] he had arrived.
Humming as if he poured affection,
Surging was the pond of mind.

Classing this bee does not succeed...
From whence he came, to where he leaves,
Having instilled devotion through rhythm and melody,
With many colors bright.

Finding a likeness to the bee does not succeed...
He wakens inclination with unspoken speech.
Song gets sung in a throat unaccompanied,
Those notes transcending time.

Getting past the disguise

(2351)  Kajal kalo ankhir pare

Black kohl on eyes,
Whose portrait floated in?
Any rays of light from the horizon,
In that portrait only they got mixed.

Filling that portrait is a smile;
And so that portrait I do like...
On it alone I muse day and night;
My psyche it did rivet.

Remaining hid is His disposition;
To get His depth by intellect is burdensome.
But He becomes one's own through love;
Unwavering is that form cosmic.

Hunger no more

(2350)  Prabhu tomar namer bharasa niye

Master, taking Your name's trust,
I'll navigate the unplumbed sea.
Obstructive pebbles having crushed,
Your song I'll go on singing.

Head held high and facing forward–
With a hand bearing Your standard,
Worn on brow triumph's tilak,
I'll create a new humanity.

I won't remain with undecided mind–
Everybody's appetite must be satisfied,
In every life ambrosia multiplied;
Right of survival I'll concede.

His mysterious grace

(2349)  Tumi ele alo jharale

You came and shed effulgence
At this, my floral garden.
Color having scattered, love having wakened,
Who knows where You went.

Understanding style of affection, it is hard;
Shines sometimes from close-by, sometimes from afar.
On occasion a drop, on occasion an ocean,
Every moment You don a dress.

I've achieved, even by force saying so cannot be;
Lost am I, lost am I, in mind always fear.
Thine is the victory, from stellar space I hear–
Floating on the wind it descends.

Never boring

(2348)  Andhar hrday alo kare

Into my dark heart, illuminating,
Oh Who came, Who appeared?
With trance of ideation, to an unknown city
Myself You carried, lavishing melody.

Supernal is Your movement in rhythm;
All Creation is imbued with Your hymn.
Your radiant splendor is imperishable;
In its cradle the world is made to swing.

For Your affection, I have no comparison,
Always novel and a great agitation.
It fulfills sacred endeavor
With a liveliness billowy.
