A Speck of Dust

I know, I am a speck of dust.
Yet the Mother of the Universe
Eternally stays with me.
She is my Eternal Companion.
She is my only Consolation.

On the one hand, I am the poorest of all.
On the other hand, I am the child of light
Of the Mother of the Universe.
May I remain unperturbed
In all my happiness and sorrows.
