Tagore Song (#64) I Know This Day Will Be Gone - Poem by Tushar Ray

(Jani-go din jabe edin jabe edin-jabe)

I know this day will be gone,
Once at the end of day -
The setting sun will look at me
With a sad smile in face
Asking for departure for the day
Then bamboo flutes will
Be ringing by wayside
The cattle will be grazing
In river-front lawn
Children will be playing
In fenced home yard
And birds will sing song -
Still the day will be gone!

Here is my deep appeal to Thee
May I know Thy Reason?
For asking me to come to earth
Before I depart from!
Green earth is looking up to
The sky with deep eyes
Why quietness of night
Discloses to me the star-talks?
And my life grows wavy
By brilliant day-lights!
I am pleading answers to Thee

Once my role on earth will be gone
I wish to stop totally
Later finishing my ongoing song
I will fill my bowl
By flower and fruits of six-seasons
Before the end of my day!
