Tagore Song, posted and translated by Ranu

I am the only one alive.

What I had, I lost.

I’m  left with loneliness.

Those who I thought were mine,

no longer respond.

I weep and ask myself

where are they, I get no response.

O mother please tell me,

whom shall I call?

I ask you mother-

Why did you take away

everything from me.

How hard-hearted do you think

I am to be able to  to live by myself!

    • Dear Robert,
      Thank you so much for your comment. Tagore had four children, they died at a very young age. His wife also died when she was very young. I feel the song I translated was written after he lost his children and wife.

    • Dear Sonya,
      Thank you so much. This is the song Tagore wrote after all his children and wife died. One of the lines, ‘I call them but get no response.’
