Tagore song, Grief. Death. The pain of parting. : Rabindranath Tagore
translated from Bengali to English by Nandini Gupta
Grief. Death. The pain of
parting. Yet peace, yet joy, the
Life goes on. The sun,
moon, stars shine. Spring arrives in
its myriad hues.
Waves recede, waves rise,
Flowers fall off, flowers bloom.
There is no decay.
Not the least damage.
Nothing ends. To embrace this
fullness my mind yearns.
