Poem – Do not Leave Me – Mirabai

Mirabai 1498 - 1546  Kudki , India

1498 – 1546
Kudki , India

Do not leave me alone, a helpless woman. 

My strength, my crown, 

I am empty of virtues, 

You, the ocean of them. 

My heart’s music, you help me 

In my world-crossing. 

You protected the king of the elephants. 

You dissolve the fear of the terrified. 
Where can I go? Save my honour 

For I have dedicated myself to you 

And now there is no one else for me.
