Why Did You Wake My Dear - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam

Why did you wake me my dear if you'll abandon me.
The blossoming flower will unnecessarily dry up,
I was asleep alone in the wood, the wood flower
My girlish mind was content folded up,
Why did you stir it with a woman's desires.
Oh my darling;
Why did you allow the wind and sky to bruise my heart.

[Original: Keno ghum bhangale priyo; Translation: Abu Rushd]
