Letting go. 1

I have got my leave. Bid me farewell, my brothers!
I bow to you and all and take my departure.
Here I give back the keys of my door – and I give up all claims to my house.
I only ask for last kind words from you.
We were neighbors for long, but I received more than I could give.
Now the day has dawned and the lamp that lit my dark corner is out.
A summons has come and I am ready for my journey.

(Tagore, from Gitanjali, XCIII)
