You stole my heart, my soul and my mind.
You rob my sleep, my content and my peace.
Just by your glance, just by your glance.

You shake my belief, my conviction and my faith.
You stirred my thought, my contemplation and my confidence.
Just by your glance, just by your glance.

You turn me insane, stunned and spellbound.
You made me stormed, flamed and blazed.
Just by your glance, just by your glance.

Of my madness there is no cure.
I am incurable.
Of my thirst there is no quench.
I am desert dry.

Of my hunger there is no contentment.
I am burning fire.
Of my sickness there is no remedy.
I am undiagnosed.

Of my desire there is no limit.
I am void.
Of my faith there is no surety.
I am blind.

Of my religion there is no temple.
I am lover.
Of my insanity there is no end.
I am infinite.

What heals me, you do not know.
It is the touch of my love.
What enchants me, you do not know.
It is the face of my love.

What warms me, you do not know.
It is the embrace of my love.
What awakens me, you do not know.
It is the dream of my love.

I am richest among the riches.
Only if I be with my love.
I am powerest among the powers.
Only if I be with my love.

I am master among the masters.
Only if I be with my love.
I am king among the kings.
Only if I be with my love.

If world will perish, my love will remain.
If my love will perish everything will annihilate.
If sun will extinguish, my love will remain.
If my love will extinguish everything will vanish.

If heaven will fall, my love will remain.
If my love will fall everything will crumble.
If all will die, my love will remain.
If my love dies everything will dissolve.

If God is there, my love will remain.
Even if God is not there, still my love will remain.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
