Forgetting that I'm blessed

(2730)  Hat pete rai tomar kache

I stay beggared in Your presence;
Word to say, I suffer from embarrassment.
In morning's dress or evening-ornamented,
'Midst my penury is wretchedness.

Only words of desire I conceive;
My own demands I go on placing.
In imagination's realm I rise and sink,
With Your work having forgotten.

This eddy of infatuation mine
Creates the absence of light.
Shed steadily, that flow from eyes,
It makes forget You are adjacent.
