Ode to the departed one :A Bengali love-song by Tagore

Sung  by Srikanta Acharya

English translation of the lyrics

In my heart, thou shall, in silence, alight…
Like the glowing moon and the Dame of the Night.

My life, my youth…
My world absolute;
Thou shall draw bright…
Like the Dame of the Night…

Alone shall rise, eyes of thee,
Thy billowing drapes shall protect me.
My pain, my screams,
My success dreams;
Thou shall delight,
Like the Dame of the Night
