An Auspicious Union by R.Tagore translated by Ranu
An Auspicious Union __ Rabindranath Tagore
In my mind she is my closest relative
I have only known her for a short while.
I do not know much about her
we know very little of each other
alas! there is so much we don’t know.
One day one of us will leave this worldly existence
never to return to face one another,
how can we find each other in this vast universe!
Therefore in this auspicious union ,my dearest,
why do I see you so beautiful!
Why in this short moment ,o my beloved ,
did I not recognize you as someone I knew my whole life.
