From One Hundred Poems, II. 120

Kabir (1440–1518)
HOW 1 could the Love between Thee and me sever?
As the leaf of the Lotus abideth on the water,
  so Thou art my Lord and I am thy servant.
As the moon-bird chakor gazeth all night at the moon,
  so Thou art my Lord and I am thy servant.        5
From the beginning until the end of Time there is love between Thee and me;
  and how shall such love be extinguished?
KABIR saith, As a river arriving unto the Ocean,
  so my heart toucheth Thee.
Note 1. Kabir. II. 120. [See 17.] [back]
