    He was a poet of love,
    He was a poet of rebellion
    He was simple but profound,
    He was funny but he was very kind.
    He was a poet who is touching our heart
    and intriguing our mind
    He was a phenomenon and
    He was phenomenal
    As a poet and as a bird of song
    He is living in our heart and in our love. Dr. Mridha.

Best Poem of Kazi Nazrul Islam

Alone

My eyes don't go by forbidding;
so does my mind
neither by forbidding nor by weeping.

Over the ages I have been looking for you
staying at roadside,
tears rolled down overflowing my banks
not caring for eye wash.

I am alone in the midst of all
which is why I long to see you
death, too, reckons none barring you.

[Original: Noyon je mor; Translation: Mohammad Nurul Huda]
