Love fire lit me today,
And I am burning with its flame,
Before I turn to ashes,
O you, come and touch me.

Love light blossomed me today,
And I am filled with its fragrance,
Before I wither and fade,
O Bee, come and kiss me.

Love rain showered me today,
And I am drenched with its shower,
Before I get dry and dissolve,
O you, come and hold me.

Love snake bit me today,
And I am poisoned with its venom,
Before it kills me,
O you, come and heal me.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
