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


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?
