178. Allow me not to forget YouLord, allow me not to forget You.
If ever I forget You,
Do torture my heart ruthlessly.
If excruciating pangs shall compel me
To forget You,
Do awaken me with Your infinite Compassion.
If ever the sleep of death attacks me,
Do come and protect me.
Do remain inside my sleeping heart.
I have not asked You for anything
Meaningful and fruitful.
Do allow me not to forget You.
Sri Chinmoy, The caged bird and the uncaged bird, Agni Press, 1998
