My Worship

In my ceremony of your worship
It is you whom I forget
And I fail to guess how I miss you.
I fail to touch your feet
From beyond the barriers
Of these flowers and garlands
And all these lights and smoke of incense
I keep you covered
With the curtain of my hymns.
In my ceremony of your worship
It is you whom I forget.
 
To see you
I arrange these useless ceremonies
I have my own thirsty eyes
What is the use of this going to the temple
I have a place of worship in a corner of my mind
There I can silently call you
With the simple ardour of my heart.
In my ceremony of your worship
It is you whom I forget.

 
Translation of the devotional song – Tomar pujar chhole tomay bhulei thaki – from the collection Gitimalya (81) by Rabindranath Tagore. It was composed at Santiniketan on 14th Chaitra, 1320 BS (28th March, 1914). Best recording of this song is by Debabrata Biswas.
