The one after your heart

সে যে মনের মানুষ
shey je moner manush

The one after your heart
Why make Him wait at the gate of your eye
Call him into your heart
Let your eyes be awash in tears

When the light dims as night falls
Lay a mat within your heart
He will come in secret
In the very darkness of separation

On the secret path he to-and-fros
He will come and go as per his wish

The moment you pledge to bind him
He stays no more, the bonds remain
Trapped in your own thoughts
All you do is bind yourself with those bonds
