Parting1.jpg
  You left that day
In the darkening evening
Keeping me in two minds
While leaving
You stopped at the gate for a moment
And cast a glance behind
I wonder what was in your mind
Now you are away
With a trembling heart I am only thinking
Why the corner of your eyes
Glistened with a smile.
Cranes are flying in a chain in the distant sky
My pining heart flies with them
I want to ask you only once
At your parting
What it was you left unsaid
Have you left it mingled
With the fragrance of that flower
That is bathing in the rains?

Translation of the love song – Mone ki dwidha rekhe gele chole sedin bhara sanjhe – by
Rabindranath Tagore. Best recording of this song is by Debabrata Biswas. The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/5546.
