Before I Go

  Before I go this only I ask of you
After I am gone
Please don’t engrave my name on a stone.
All my life in return for my songs
I have sought only a drop of tear
From someone’s eyes
And a long sigh
From someone’s heart
I have seen how in spring
Withered flowers drop
From the flowering trees
Under their shades
I have seen how in a storm
Homes crumble down
I have also seen
In the midst of joy sorrow sighing.
Before leaving
Let me bow my head
Before men’s great pains.

 
Transcreation of a classic modern Bengali song – Ami chole gele/Pashaner buke likhona amar nam – first released by His Master’s Voice in 1953. It was recorded by the famous singer Satinath Mukhopadhyay.
