Amar Chapal Pran

Amar chapal pran
Tomare karite dan
Kata shatabar cheyechi
Asha bitapite
Bedanar shite
Britha more hai bendhechi


I have tried hundreds of times
To offer my restless life to You.
I have found myself bound
In the huge hope-tree
And in the chill of excruciating pangs.
Alas, I am totally lost.
