My mind on Thee

(2442)  Ganer dali sajiye tuli

A tray[1] of songs, arrayed I offer up respectfully
Unto Thee, eagerly awaiting advent.
For Your sake I am composing,
And I am rehearsing often.

On these songs of mine is coated love;
A memoir of my life is in these songs.
It paid no mind to if a day was auspicious,
Or to any earthly impediment.

When gone were the snows and summer fires,
Arrived a motley-flowered springtime.
Naught it deemed virtue or vice,
External or inherent.
It is there, unparalleled like the pearl,
Having filled an oyster shell.

  1. You are the only thing in my life, all I recognize and long to see. In that light, perfect is my everything.
