POEM OF THE DAY: My Dependence

by Rabindranath Tagore  (1861 – 1941).

 

My Dependence

 

I like to be dependent, and so for ever

with warmth and care of my mother

my father, to love, kiss and embrace

wear life happily in all their grace.

 

I like to be dependent, and so for ever                        5

on my kith and kin, for they all shower

harsh and warm advices, complaints

full wondering, true and info giants.

 

I like to be dependent, and so for ever

for my friends, chat and want me near                      10

with domestic, family and romantic tips

colleagues as well, guide me work at risks.

 

I like to be dependent, and so for ever

for my neighbours too, envy at times

when at my rise of fortune like to hear                      15

my daily steps, easy and odd things too.
