Don’t wake her

ওরে জাগায়ো না
ore jagayo na

Don’t wake her
She seeks respite at the feet of unsparing fate
She wants to forsake all her wants
Pouring them into a plumbless depth

Let her put down the unbearable burden of anxieties
Let her forget the deprivations of an insignificant life

Let a deep sleep descend
Let its ebon brush black out
Taunts of the past from her memory

Let the echoes of pain subside into stillness
Like the nest of a quiescent bird
Let a dark night descend
A gift of peace to the dumbstruck darkness of weary woe
