DEATH
by Rabendranath Tagore (1861-1941)
O Thou the last fulfillment of Life,
Death,my death, come and whisper to me!
 
Day after Day I have kept watch for thee:
For thee have I borne the joys and pangs of Life.
 
All that I am , that I have, that I hope and all my LOVE
Have ever flowed towards thee in depth of secrecy.
 
One final glance from thine eyes
And my life will be ever Thine own.
 
The flowers have been woven 
and the garland is ready for the bridegroom.
 
After the wedding the bride shall leave her home 
and meet her Lord alone in the solitude of night.
