243. Father and daughter

To love You, Father,
I have discarded
My arrows of desire.
"Thank you, daughter."

To please You, Father,
I have stopped eating
With ignorance-life.
"Thank you, daughter."

To become inseparably one with You,
I am challenging
The pride of my brooding night.
"Thank you, daughter."
