Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)
Ever in my life have I sought thee with my songs.
It was they who led me from door to door,
and with them have I felt about me,
searching and touching my world.
It was my songs that taught me
all the lessons I ever learnt;
they showed me secret paths,
they brought before my sight
many a star on the horizon of my heart.
They guided me all the day long to the mysteries
of the country of pleasure and pain,
and, at last, to what palace gate have they brought me
in the evening at the end of my journey?
