Our Meeting

Two of us once met
Where had stopped the streams of life and death
Where time stood still.  
Today it is so far and away
Now I am sailing alone
My boat is rocking in the storm
I now remember again
How once we met
At the end of the world
Where descended the heaven.
 
Forgetting all
We sat there side by side
That day I realized
What sways the blades of grass
Throughout the world
In what joy everything shivers;
In the dark how shine stars;
In what great urge
The breath of life rush
That day I realized
When we woke up and looked at each other’s face.
 
Taking your hand in my hand
I kept looking at the sky
We had no words
And didn’t know how our time passed
That day I realized in my heart of hearts
Where end the meanings of our words  
How music rises from the core of the universe
How the pining woods blossom into flowers
These we realized when we wept
In endless pleasure.
 
We came to know in what fire
Silently burn the winds of spring
Why the morning sun
Yearns to get lost in everything
To meet the sea
Day and night why the river runs
Why lightning is hurt by its own light
What game night plays with dawn
Accepting defeat.
All these we realized
When with each other we played
Staking our everything 

Transcreation of the poem Milon from the collection Purabi by Rabindranath Tagore.
