Sabai Jakhan Chai Amare

Sabai jakhan chai amare
Takhan tomai chai ki kare
Tai bujhi ma daona dhara
Phirbe amar jirna ghare
Ebar jakhan dakbe tara
Ar debana tader sara
Tanbe jakhan theko amai dhare
Thakbo mago tomar paye pare


When everybody wants me,
How can I long for You?
Is it because of that, Mother, You hide from me?
You will return to my small
And broken heart-room.
Mother, this time when others call me,
I shall give no response.
When they pull me to the outer world,
You hold me firm and keep me safe
In my own little aspiring world.
Mother, may my entire life breathe
At Your Feet divine.
