Tagore song singer Kavita Krishnamurthy posted and translated by Ranu

My dear friend

What is anxiety, what is pain,

Day and night you talk about love,

Dear friend what is love?

Is it only pain, shedding tears

and sorrowful sigh

How do people give up

Happiness for love

To me everything is pleasant

fresh, young, and clear

Deep blue sky, green forest

clear moonlight

soft and gentle flower

They are like me

they only laugh and sing

they want to enjoy life and then die

they know not pain or weeping

nor do they fancy torment

The flower laughs and withers

Moonlight smiles and disappears

The night star laughs and  sacrifices itself

in the lighted ocean

Is there anyone happy like me

Come to me my friend

your heart will calm down

when you hear my happy song

If you are destined to weep daily

why not laugh at least for one day

forget your depression

So we all can sing a happy song together!

  1. Thank you very much for sharing it – and translating it so that we can understand it 🙂 . I also listened to the original while reading the translation, and was able to appreciate the lyricism of the original, I think. Indeed, the song is very touching, and I guess that it is a good advice to laugh at least once a day :D. Would like to follow it.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this very nice poetry of Tagore. I agree with the poem and Khurram Sir that it’s very nice to be able to laugh during life, even if only once a day :-).

    All good wishes,

    robert
