Tagore song, I'm tired. Forgive me, Lord. - Translated by : Rabindranath Tagore
translated from Bengali to English by Prasenjit Gupta
I’m tired. Forgive me, Lord.
If I should fall behind
And my heart’s blood should shake this way
Forgive this grief. Forgive it, Lord.
Forgive my tatters, Lord.
If I should turn to look back
And the flowers I offer should fade on the plate
Forgive that color lost. Forgive it, Lord.
