Pathe jakhan chali Shyama
Tui je chalis sathe sathe
Prati kajer phanke phanke
Ma tor parash mile dinerate
Tabu bhabi shyama bujhi
Kandar mato kandina tai
Mother Kali, when I walk along the street
I see You accompanying me.
At the interval of each new undertaking
I feel Your gracious presence.
All day and night Your presence envelops me,
Yet I know not why I feel You have deserted me.
Is it because I do not cry soulfully
That I feel You are away from me?
