231. I came to him

I came to him doubtful.
  He smiled and said:
   “Stay with me for three minutes.”

I came to him uncertain.
  He caressed the sleeping Eye between my eyebrows and said:
   “Stay with me for three years.”

I came to him with a student’s eagerness.
  He blessed my devoted head and said:
   “Stay with me for thirty years.”

I came to him with the heart of a child.
  He embraced my surrendered life and said:
   “Stay with me for eternity.”
