You are my sole shelter

Forgive my audacity
to think that i have some right on myself
I am your property forever
with body mind and speech

Life after life after life
let me attain the dust of your feet
there is no higher destination
no greater fortune to meet

Please keep me next to you
I am yours and yours alone
Let any thoughts of self interest
be burned to ashes the moment they are born

You are my protector, You are my maintainer
You are my sole shelter
Without you, there is only darkness
And not a single ray of hope

I’m wrought with million offences
not worthy of your mercy
but yet you look after me with great affection
what more could i possibly pray for

I shall remain eternally indebted
but this debt I want to forever keep
For it is another excuse to be with you
And to serve your lotus feet
