Nil Akasher Alor Pakhi

Nil akasher alor pakhi eso amar chotra prane
Mukti lagi gabhir asha amai tane tomar pane
Tumi bina jiban amar gahan andhakar
Tomai pele habo ami jyoti parabar


O blue bird of the sky,
Do descend into my tiny heart.
My heart is pining for you.
It wants to bring you close to its existence,
For, in you, it feels the liberation-song.
Without you, my heart is all darkness,
And with you, my life will be transformed
Into the ocean of Light.
