By: Rabindranath Tagore
I touch God in my Song
as the hill touches the far away sea
with its waterfall.
The Butterfly counts not months but moments
and has time enough.
Let my love, like sunlight, surround you
and yet give you illumined freedom.
Love remains a secret even when spoken
for only a lover truly knows that he is loved
Emancipation from the bondage of soil
is no freedom for thee.
In love I pay my endless debt to thee
for what thou art.
