A Sister Lies She Waiting With A Rakhi


A sister she lies waiting for you,
Dear brother,
A small lovely sister of yours,
You forget it not brother
Under the stress and strain of life
And its situations.

O brother, a sister keeps waiting at home,
When will you turn up,
When will you reach home,
A lovely and younger sister
Expecting for your return
With a band of rakhi to tie

And the candle light to round about,
A red paste to impress on the forehead
And the sweetmeat to put into the mouth,
My brother, you forget it not your lovely sister
And the bond of relationship,
The bond of sympathy, affection and attachment.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
