Poems

monk crying

 

 

 

 

 

 

Till I break, let me bend.
Till I end, let me seek.
Till I extinguish, let me burn.
O You, for you, I born.
O You, for you, I live.
O You, for you, I die.

Till I live, let me love.
Till I last, let me long.
Till I perish, let me pray.
O You, for you, I born.
O You, for you, I live.
O You, for you, I die.

Till I blind, let me cry.
Till I faint, let me whirl.
Till I die, let me dance.
O You, for you, I born.
O You, for you, I live.
O You, for you, I die.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
