For whom are you sitting and crying?
For whom are you waiting, looking at the path?

Who is that stealer of mind
who has not allowed
deep drowsiness to come into your eyes?

On the nucleus of a precious lotus
whose sweetness excels and dominates?

Who is He whose unbarred volume of hope
has filled your heart?

How much time has passed by this way,
thinking thus,
and how long
will you continue ideating this way?

Still, on your face,
no trace of fatigue appears,
from all this waiting.
