Even if not invited
I shall wait at your gate
Even if you look away and ignore
I shall not leave.
Across your way
I shall take my seat on the dust
Where you leave your foot prints
To see how you pass me by.
I shall give my songs like flowers
To your florists to make your garland.
I shall linger near your field at the harvest
When you will reap your corn.
I shall keep awake in a long fast
Where you will have your feast -
I shall wait in the dark
For you to secretly light it up.
