song by hemanta posted and translated by ranu

One day I’ll disappear like the road

I will not come back like the river

Like the day my time will end

and I will never come back

Like the fallen leaves in the wind

my mind will build its nest

in a painful sky

I will disappear like the shadow

While leaving when the traveler

Looks back and thinks of the past

His heart breaks when he

thinks about the bygone days

when the light fades from my eyes

and my mind takes over

I feel this is the end

I will never come back

I came to this  world alone

and alone I must leave it

My happiness will end

It will never come back!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for translating and sharing this song. These are such wonderful lyrics!

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. Some things return like a river (like a river that floods every spring?). But like a road that is traveled only one way, the singer someday won’t return. The lyrics in this song are thoughtful. Thank you for translating and thus giving us this message to ponder.

    • While translating the thought crossed my mind, that a river does return. Perhaps he meant the same one doesn’t. It did make me stop and think. Thank you for your comment, Clcouch. 🙂
