Gitanjali

I recently started reading the poems of Rabindranath Tagore translated in English.
This one really touched my heart and i liked it a lot.

Love of my life, I shall ever try
to keep my body pure, knowing that thy living touch
is upon all my limbs

I shall ever try to keep all untruths out from my thoughts,
knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled
the light of reason in my mind.

I shall ever try to derive all evils away from my heart
and keep my love in flower, knowing that thou hast thy seat
in the innermost shrine of my heart.

And it shall be my endeavour to reveal thee in my actions,
knowing it is thy power gives me strenght to act.
