Composed: Ashwin 1322 (October 1915)

Category: Prem (Love)

 

Bengali Lyrics:

 

কাল    রাতের বেলা গান এল মোর মনে,

          তখন তুমি ছিলে না মোর সনে ॥

যে কথাটি বলব তোমায় বলে  কাটল জীবন নীরব চোখের জলে

সেই কথাটি সুরের হোমানলে     উঠল জ্বলে একটি আঁধার ক্ষণে—

                             তখন তুমি ছিলে না মোর সনে ॥

               ভেবেছিলেম আজকে সকাল হলে

                    সেই কথাটি তোমায় যাব বলে।

ফুলের উদাস সুবাস বেড়ায় ঘুরে              পাখির গানে আকাশ গেল পূরে,

সেই কথাটি লাগল না সেই সুরে                যতই প্রয়াস করি পরানপণে—               

                                      যখন তুমি আছ আমার সনে ॥

 

The Song in English Script:

 

Kaal raater bela gaan elo mor mone,

                         Takhan tumi chhile na mor sone.

Je kothati bolbo tomay bole       kaatlo jibon nirab chokher jole

Sei kothati surer homanole       Uthlo jole ekti aandhar khone –

                         Takhan tumi chile na mor sone.

                  Bhebechhilem aajke sakal hole

                  Sei kothati tomay jaabo bole.

Phuler udas subas beray ghure      Paakhir gaane aakash gelo pure,

Sei kothati laaglo na sei sure       Jatoi proyas kori poranpane –

Jakhan tumi aachho aamar sone.

 

The Song in English Translation:

 

The song came upon me last night,

                                 whilst you were away.

I were to tell you those words          yet in silence let tearful hours pass

those words flared up in melody                     in one moment of the dark—

                                  you were not with me then.

                       Hoped at break of dawn

                       I would sing it to you before I am gone.

Flower’s fragrance is drifting                           birdsongs are filling the sky,

No longer in tune the words seem                  however intense my effort be—

                                  now that you are with me.
