Ashar Pradip Khani (1)

Ashar pradip khani
Nibe kigo jai
Jibaner godhuli belai
Bidhatar mauna bani
Nutan ashroy
Naba janma naba parichoy


Will the lamp of hope
Be extinguished in the end?
Or, in the twilight hour of life,
With the Lord’s silent Message
Will we shelter new life
And have a new identity?
Can these not be claimed by me?
