Ekti Katha Balar Lagi

Ekti katha balar lagi tomar kachhe jai

Bhaye lage tomar pane kabhu nahi chai

Ami ki ma tomai chahi na ki tumi chao

Hriday bane mukti giti kahar tumi gao


Translation

Just to tell only one small thing

I often come to You.

But when I come to You

Through fear and through shame,

I fail to look at You, at Your Face.

Mother, is it I who want You

Or You who want me?

Tell me, for whom and in whose heart

Do You sing the liberation-song?
