Swapane Shuni Hriday Bane

Swapane shuni hriday bane
Taba nupur dhwani
Jagile dekha paina kena
Ogo nayan mani
Din dupure swapan mor
Satya hok satya
Ogo arup amar majhe
Rahibe tumi nitya


In my heart-forest
I heard the jingling of Your ankle-bells.
I see You in my dreams.
But alas, when I am awake,
I see You not.
How I wish to see You during the day
And not at night in my dreams!
May the dream-reality be manifested
In my outer life of existence.
O Beauty unparalleled,
May Your Beauty be manifested
In my day-to-day activities
At every moment of my wakeful life.
