Tai tomar ananda amar parAn English translation: (the page linked has the full text of the poem as well, with its earthy imagery of divine love)
Tumi tai esecho nicche
Amae noile tribhuvaneshwar
Tomar prem hoto je micche.
-- Rabindranath Tagore
So this is why your joy has entered my heart,I first heard these beautiful words of Tagore also near another deathbed. It's a breathtakingly bold sentiment. Somewhat similar to the Psalmist's plaintive cry:
So this is why you have come down to my humble abode.
Without me your three worlds would be nothing -
For I, only I, can be the fulfillment of your love.
Dost thou work wonders for the dead? Do the shades rise up to greet thee? Is thy steadfast love declared in the grave?It's one that, I suspect, my father would have greatly appreciated.
