Where Did You Go?

Where Did You Go.jpg
Where did you go
My disillusioned heart
What did you find
In the outside world?
Here is your old home
Come, close its doors
Spread your old mattress
And sit all alone
All day long
You delved the sea beach
And collected some pebbles
All kinds of shells
You added to your load
On the banks of the saline sea
You suffered a lot of thirst
Under the cruel sun
You got yourself scorched
The dancing waves
Made a lot of noise
Without any meaning
Lazy at home
If you feel ill at ease
If you have no friends
If your evenings
Are dull and silent
If there is no light
Yet you have in your corner
Things that you love most
Things you meditate
Sit here alone
Remove their dusts
Give them a face-lift
Hug them to your heart
With a lot of love
Your garden may have no flowers
The sky is full of stars.

Translation of the love song – Bahir pathe bibagi hiya - by Rabindranath Tagore. The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/5711.
