DP Daily Prompt: Always something there to remind Me

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

I feel today’s post a day prompt is the best one so far. It gives me an opportunity to speak my mind. I listened to this song several times on YouTube this morning and yesterday.

The song gives me a nostalgic memory of my original home. What I miss. How it was when I was growing up. It is a song written by my most favorite writer Tagore and sung by favorite singer ,Hemant Kumar. And pleasantly in my language Bengali.

I have translated the best way I can. I hope the meaning will convey my thoughts.

I ask my mind

Do you know who you left behind?

I ask my mind

Do you know who you left behind?

For that reason

You couldn’t

Rest all your life

I ask my mind

Do you know who you left behind?

You have forgotten

The path you chose to leave

How will you go back?

I ask my mind

I keep my ears

Close to the river

To hear the chime of the water

My heart shivers

When I hear the rustling leaves

I feel I will find the place

If I understand the

Language of flowers

For the last time

I ask my mind

Do you know

Who you left behind

Yes the path that has followed

The evening star

My mind tells me!!

  1. I love this piece of music; it really appeals to me – and, in an odd way I cannot explain, feels very familiar. Thanks for sharing. xxx
