The night is dark and your slumber is...
Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)
The night is dark and your slumber is deep
in the hush of my being.
Wake, O Pain of Love, for I know not how
to open the door, and I stand outside.
The hours wait, the stars watch, the wind is still,
the silence is heavy in my heart.
Wake, Love, wake! brim my empty cup,
and with a breath of song ruffle the night.
