Bengali song — Shok tap

Shok tap jetha nai
Setha jete chai
Kusumita hridayer
Alomoi pakhi
Heshechhila e dharani
Mor bedanai
Prana-shaka dao more
Prema sudha rakhi


My bird of light in the blossomed heart
Wants to go where there is no grief, no bereavement.
The world once mocked at my excruciating pangs.
O Beloved of my heart, grant me the cord of love-nectar.
