I Cannot Be Patient Any Longer
O my Lord, I cannot be patient any longer;
Soothe me with your vision.
I am dying to see your form,
I am as uneasy as a fish out of water.
Please let me know how I can obtain you.
As a chakor bird waits for the full moon
And a daughter waits
For an invitation from her parents,
As a hungry child awaits its mother,
So am I eagerly waiting day and night
To see your beautiful face.
I am suffering so much in my desire to meet you
That not a wink of sleep do I get,
And tears flow continuously from my eyes.
Fulfil your promise and meet me, O Lord.
O breath of my life,
Please remove the curtain
And grant me your true vision.
Tukaram, The Ceaseless Song of Devotion
