Roam about and call out with all your heart

ফিরে ফিরে ডাক্‌ দেখি রে পরান খুলে
phire phire daak (audio: Suchitra Mitra)

Roam about and call out with all your heart
Beseech and beckon as you roam about
Let’s see how he can remain aloof

Let that plea waft in the woods
Let that plea entreat one and all
Let that plea sway in your heart
Amidst your joys and your pain

From dawn to dusk to nightfall in each moment
Call out with your heart in quiet solitude

Entreat with your eyes
Listen at your door
Let your plea find a place
Among the flowers on your bosom

Another version by Anandamayee Majumdar:

Invoke him endlessly,
Desire him completely,
Let your soul breath and burn for him.
With all that passion calling,
How will he stay away?

Let your call hover in the woodlands,
Let it seep into the crowd,
Let it rap with your heart,
Let it breath with your smile
And flow with your tear.

In radiance, in darkness
Bid him from dawn to dusk
Culling out your plea
In quiet contemplation.

Implore him with your eyes,
Listen for him on the pathway.
Let your prayer lace your heart
Like a bud in a fragrant wreath.
