Death Poem by Rabindranath Tagore

Death

Rating: 3.1


O thou the last fulfilment of life,
Death, my death, come and whisper to me!

Day after day I have kept watch for thee;
for thee have I borne the joys and pangs of life.

All that I am, that I have, that I hope and all my love
have ever flowed towards thee in depth of secrecy.

One final glance from thine eyes
and my life will be ever thine own.

The flowers have been woven
and the garland is ready for the bridegroom.

After the wedding the bride shall leave her home
and meet her lord alone in the solitude of night.

'After the wedding the bride shall leave her home and meet her lord alone in the solitude of night.' I can't help but thinking that he was refering to Jesus. The Bible is consistent with calling Him the Bridegroom, and the church or the individual believer The Bride.

" After the wedding the bride shall leave her home and meet her lord alone in the solitude of night" . What a fantastic comparison!
