A stranger at my gateway, knocks

কে দিল আবার আঘাত
Ke dilo abar aghat (audio: Debabrata Biswas)

A stranger at my gateway, knocks
I wonder what he wants from me
It is a somber night, a night of rain
I am left alone to my memory

I recall a visit, so many years
A youthful one showed up in spring
He changed my life with vibrant vibes
He won my heart with stirring swings

A downpour of eternal rain
Thick darkness surrounds my gloom
My lamps have died in a shattered shack
I wait,  awake, in my lonely room

My beloved stranger, as I read,
Your songs lilt on, mirthful, sweet,
My heart would love to seek you out
Through an inky, nameless, secret street
