Not Altogether Lost

TagoreBy Rabindranath Tagore
I know that this life, missing its ripeness in
love, is not altogether lost.
I know that the flowers that fade in the dawn,
the streams that strayed in the desert, are not
altogether lost.
I know that whatever lags behind, in this life
laden with slowness, is not altogether lost.
I know that my dreams that are still
unfulfilled, and my melodies still unstuck, are
clinging to Your lute strings, and they are not
altogether lost.
