Take it away

Hey dear friend,

all this glamour,

family and drama,

all this egocentric

so called fortune,

is poisoning the spirit

of my devotion.

Hey dear friend,

all this gossip,

inattention,

and deviation,

is making me trip over

the latest temptation.

Hey dear friend,

all this useless speculation,

degrades my calculations,

on how to serve others’

hearts trepidations.

Thus,

I call upon You,

for Your kindness,

knows no bounds,

for Your Love,

has no limits.

Simply take it all away!

What is the need for a home­–

when You are not there?

What is the need for a temple–

when no one chants Your names?

What is the need for a family–

when You are not at the centre?

Oh, dear friend,

simply take it all away!

There is no taste for

any endeavour

unless it is done for You!

There is no use of

any vows

unless they are done for You!

There is no point of

any sacrifices

unless they are done for You!

Simply take all these away,

and give Yourself to us!

Simply make us forget all else,

and let us remember only You!

Simply remove all out of the way,

and let us join Your Dance!
