My third bengali poem....
Ek baar to asho,
Eshe dekhe jao, obosta ta ki,
Ekbaar asho, bolao mathae haath,
Bhule jao kalker kotha, shue poro pashe.
Boli duto kotha ondhokare alor bepare,
Boli shomoyer pashe pashe chokh mele,
Ake oporke ador kore.
Aj ei raat take mone shajie rakho,
Kal aar dekhbena amake, jachi je chole,
Oi kalo somudrored pare, dekhbena amae.
Tai aj bolenao kotha, khure baar koro shobdo,
Bole phelo, reone chupti kore,
Aaj ei shesh rate.
For once, come tome,
come and see the state i am in,
come, for once; caress me,
forget the tales of yesterday, lie beside me.
lets say a few words in the dark about the light that lay ahead,
lets say a few words by the passing time, looking into each other's eyes, adoring each other.
Capture this night, in the deepest of your memories,
i won't be there to see tomorrow,
sailing away i am to the blackest of seas.
So, say tonight, dig out the buried words,
say it, stop not
tonight, this night of the end.
