By Rabindranath Tagore
(1861 - 1941)

English version by Rabindranath Tagore

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.

A poem (and especially by Tagore) is a superb spiritual pointer, allowing content between and beyond and above the words...

And the moving candle contributes to the atmosphere...
