As the tender twilight covers its fold of dust-veil

marks of hurt and wastage from the dusty day’s

prostrations, even so let my great sorrow for thy

loss, Beloved, spread one perfect golden-tinted

silence o’er my life.

Let all its jagged fractures and distortions, all

unmeaning scattered scraps and wrecks and random

ruins, merge in vastness of some evening stilled with

thy remembrance, filled with endless harmony of

pain and peace united.

(Rabindrath Tagore)
