My thoughts stray on lost pathways

পূর্ণচাঁদের মায়ায় আজি ভাবনা আমার পথ ভোলে
Poorno chaander mayay aji bhabna amar pawth bhole

My thoughts stray on lost pathways

Tonight in magical webs of a full moon
Like river birds they fly, fly, fly away.
In melodies of shadow and light
Lost memories call them back,
Come away, come away, return!
Traveling through lost Phalgoon* twilights
They keep looking for their friend,
But a pain beyond time cries out
Trembling in light and shadow, 
Alas, alas, alas!

*Phalgoon - the first month of spring in Bengal.
