Everlasting love

Although I have read poems by Rabindranath Tagore, I have never read any of his love poems.

Here is a love poem by Tagore I came across a few days before that moved me deeply.

Unending Love (Anant Prem)

- Rabindranath Tagore, Translated by William Radice

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age forever.
My spell-bound heart has made and re-made the necklace of songs
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms
In life after life, in age after age forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together,
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount
At the heart of time love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell –
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you,
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life,
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.


  1. It's been a long time since we heard from you. Beautiful poem as well.

  2. A beautiful post here. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Lovely. And even more so to see you again. I hope all is well with you and yours.

    Eu também já li muitos versos de Tagore em forma de citações.
    Não conhecia esse poema de amor.

    Que o menino de Belém traga esperança e muitas alegrias para todos nós!!!

    Bom domingo! Ótima semana!

  5. Beautiful. I read this way back and comes like a fresh memory of I related to it then and now I feel I could relate to it all better and feel the same.

  6. Welcome back, it would be good to hear more from you next year.
    Look after yourself.

  7. Happiest of Christmases to you, Ruby! May the New Year find you abundantly aware of His blessings in your life!

  8. A poem which calls for some thought.
    A poem that you really should read and what you can learn and what you support. I can imagine that this poem gives a lot of emotion and feelings.
    Thank you for sharing.

    I wish you a very nice and loving 2016.

    Dear groejtes, Helma
