Tumi Amar Sokalbelar Sur

You are my morning melody
You make my heavy heart drift away
You bring tears to my eye

Your eyes glisten like the misty morning star
They make me cry for your love

You are the moon at the climax of night
Blemished in the pain of parting

You are like flower carelessly scattered under the tree
Bathed in the hue of morning mist
Pristine like an angel

Blushing in your tender crimson shade
You look so sensitive, so vulnerable

In the disguise of happiness
As if you came from the land of melancholy

You are the abandoned harp in the celestial court
silent yet heartrending
