In the dark hollows of my heart

ছিল যে পরানের অন্ধকারে
Chhilo je poraner ondhokare (Audio: Ritu Guha)  

In the dark hollows of my heart

I held a hidden soul,
Revealed now to my eyes
Through a shaft of sunshine

Once fettered by my dreams,
He has splintered his shell

And surged out in the open
And how I behold him
With my unbelieving gaze

I had once welded my tears

Into a string of aching desires
Restraining him by my hurt

Yet, though I treasured him,
Guarded him with solitude,

A tearful silence, I realize
Through eternity, he is the breath,

The passion the world lauds and loves
