(38) I want thee, only thee (from Gitanjali)by Rabindranath Tagore
English version by Rabindranath Tagore
Original Language Bengali
That I want thee, only thee -- let my heart repeat without end. All desires that distract me, day and night, are false and empty to the core.
As the night keeps hidden in its gloom the petition for light, even thus in the depth of my unconsciousness rings the cry -- I want thee, only thee.
As the storm still seeks its end in peace when it strikes against peace with all its might, even thus my rebellion strikes against thy love and still its cry is -- I want thee, only thee.
