They Cannot Wait For Me

On her way to see the Lord Supreme,

Mother-Earth cannot wait for me

Because

I am too proud.

On his way to see the Lord Supreme,

Father-Heaven cannot wait for me

Because

I am too impure.

On its way to see the Lord Supreme,

My soul-bird cannot wait for me

Because

I am too slow.
