Rabindranath Tagore

Farewell

I have got my leave. Bid me farewell, my brothers! I bow to you 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.
