This poem is from 'The Crescent Moon' by Tagore                                                        

I want to give you something, my child,
for we are drifting in the stream of the world.
Our lives will be carried apart,
and our love forgotten
But I am not so foolish as to hope that
.I could buy your heart with my gifts

Young is your life, your path long, and
you drink the love we bring you at one drought
.and turn and run away from us
You have your play and your playmates
.What harm is there if you have no time
or thought for us

We, indeed, have leisure enough in old age
to count the days that are past,
to cherish in our hearts what our
.hands have lost for ever
The river runs swift with a song,
.breaking through all barriers
But the mountain stays and remembers,
and follows her with his love
