Why stay away?

(2829)  Amay chere keman kare

Myself abandoned, by what means
Are You, oh Lord, remote from me?
Full of tears these eyes of mine,
For a moment, do they not cause grief?

Day concludes, evening draws nigh;
Age after age, it transpires.
A flower blooms, then to earth it falls and lies,
Inside the gloomy house of my mental agony.

My desire is not excessive;
Just the one tune getting practiced.
In that very melody is sung a hymn,
 Upon the dust of Your feet.
