Words drown in overwhelming grief

হায় গো, ব্যথায় কথা যায় ডুবে যায়
haay go byathay kawtha jaay doobe jaay

Words drown in overwhelming grief
In streaming tears I lose my tune

Your ship has sailed into the seas
While I wander from shore to shore
A place for me there was not
On your boat bright and golden
Where oh where in this darkness
Do I now look for the road

Anxiety weighs heavy on my eyes
Gazing on I wait at the door
None can tell me the whereabouts
Of a home where that lantern shines
I sit down in a secluded corner
Across the dark sea of this endless night
