Absent Your light

(2879)  Cai jata bhule jete nahi pari bhulite

Much as I want to forget, I cannot ignore;
Rising atop Eastern Mount,[1] Your luster flashes.
Packing a house with light, the fondness-shrouded body
Goes to Your mountain, to the downpour of sweetness.

What's stayed amid the mind, has stayed behind and in front;
It's there in wealth and penury, oh does that get forgotten?

In the past it had been with, even still it's along;
Having stayed whole life beside, close by it will go on.
In a huff momentary, not looking in its direction,
Having thought to neglect that, oh how hard was it!

  1. To go without it is like being blind, but worse for having poked out my own eyes.
