Accept me, my lord, accept me for this while

by Rabindranath Tagore

English version by Rabindranath Tagore
Original Language Bengali

Accept me, my lord, accept me for this while.
Let those orphaned days that passed without thee be forgotten.
Only spread this little moment wide across thy lap, holding it under thy light.
I have wandered in pursuit of voices that drew me yet led me nowhere.
Now let me sit in peace and listen to thy words in the soul of my silence.
Do not turn away thy face from my heart's dark secrets, but burn them till they are alight with thy fire.

-- from Lover's Gift and Crossing, by Rabindranath Tagore
