You came in dark times,
why did not You come during my happy hours?

Why did You come on dark nights,
when my home could not be decorated?

You told me
that You would come on an appropriate occasion,
and become my guest in my home.

You came untimely
and neither a proper reception nor my services
could I offer.

The golden lamp had been kept ready with ghee and wick.
The fragrant incense lay in its pot. Sandal was pasted and kept in its cup,
but You did not even give me the time to apply it on You.
