Amito Tomare Dakina Chahina

Amito tomare dakina chahina
Tabu kena more dakicho
Amito tomare dibona amai
Tabu kena bhalobasicho
Jani ami jani taba kripa ankhi
Khamibe amar amire
Tabu kena hai nirabadhi rahi
Moher nishar gabhire


I do not need You.
Yet, why do You need me?
You know well that I shall not surrender
my earth-existence to You.
Yet, why do You love me?
I know Your Compassion-Eye.
You forgive my little ‘i’.
Alas, why do I always remain in the heart
of blind darkness-night?
