English Bhajan no. 7445 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
I always relied on you, you deserted me like this;
How could you, how could you, how could you?
I always loved you, you never took notice of it; how could you...
I always wanted to speak to you, you always avoided it; how could you...
We had good relations, you broke without telling me; how could you...
I waited for you, you made me wait and wait for you; how could you...
You always ran away from me, I wanted to be near you; how could you...
I always wanted to explain you, you never gave me chance to do; how could you...
Many times you said we are made for each other, still not near; how could you...
Nobody is never always right, you never said I was right one too; how could you...

Explanation in English
In this English hymn, Kaka is gently complaining to the Almighty about lack of absolute oneness with Him such that some separation still remains despite all the efforts -
We often want to leave things to God to do as He wishes for us, while sincerely hoping that He will actually do only what we want Him to do for us, regardless of His own wishes for us
When God does something that does not fit in with our expectations, we feel let down and disappointed and start wondering why He did not want to do so
We then even have the audacity to profess our supposed love for Him but want to doubt his genuine and sincere love for us
We always yearn to have a two-way conversation with God like we do with others but are unable to understand how God does actually speaks to us whatever He wants us to be aware of
We want to ensure that we always stay in the good books of God but fail to realise that He can truly know every single thing about us and whatever that we may consider to be proper, it may not be what God expects from us and has the right to be disappointed in us
We wish and try to be one with God and as we only think in terms of our efforts over a minuscule amount of time, we automatically assume that God has forsaken us without realising that becoming one with God can take eons and millions of lives
We want to give our excuses as justifications and rationalisations but God knows exactly what all they are and will never accept it as such
We cajole Him that we are exactly one with Him and there is no reason for Him to remain separated from us, while disregarding all our own actions taken that would never ever be done by God Himself
Ultimately, we lay the blame for all our shortcomings on His feet itself, by assuming that as no one is perfect, we cannot be blamed for our actions and deeds
Becoming one with God is not an easy process at all as Kaka shows how despite doing all the necessary things, God still eludes and keeps us at bay. However, what Kaka is informing us is that what we want is not necessarily what He may want for us. So, all our feelings are just one sided and conditional from only our own perspective. But, by placing our own wants and ourselves out of the consideration, we can be rest assured that whatever God chooses and does for us is undoubtedly the best for us as we are unable to see anything beyond the simple moment or object, while God is omniscient.

He has written about 10,000 hymns which cover various aspects of spirituality, such as devotion, inner knowledge, truth, meditation, right action and right living. Most of the Bhajans are in Gujarati, but there is also a treasure trove of Bhajans in English, Hindi and Marathi languages.
