By Rabindranath



In my midnight doze I think of

how I shall at dawn open my eyes

and see you.

Awake in the white light of day

I tell myself how I may joyously

bring the day’s work to you.

I think of you while at work–

and tell myself that at day’s end

I shall sit at your side.

And in the evening, I sit in

your sea of infinite rest, knowing

that my tired soul is home.
