(Kon) Sonálii prahare suradhárá dhare
Tumi esechile keu jáne ná
Manke mátále práńke bharále
Bodhi d́hele dile sabár ajáná

Tárpar kata kál ket́e geche
Kata jaladhárá ságare misheche
Kata phul hese khase geche
Mishe kálgahvare nái gańaná

Sei kśań theke ámi base áchi
Pal anupal guńiyá calechi
Klántir gháye ghume d́hale gechi
Ámár vedaná keu bojhe ná

(কোন্‌) সোনালী প্রহরে সুরধারা ধরে’
তুমি এসেছিলে কেউ জানে না
মনকে মাতালে প্রাণকে ভরালে
বোধি ঢেলে’ দিলে সবার অজানা

তারপর কত কাল কেটে গেছে
কত জলধারা সাগরে মিশেছে
কত ফুল হেসে’ খসে’ গেছে
মিশে’ কালগহ্বরে নাই গণনা

সেই ক্ষণ থেকে আমি বসে’ আছি
পল-অনুপল গুণিয়া চলেছি
ক্লান্তির ঘায়ে ঘুমে ঢলে’ গেছি
আমার বেদনা কেউ বোঝে না

At some golden moment[nb 2] along the flow of melody,
You had come; does anybody know it?
Mind You intoxicated, heart You made replete;
Unbeknown to all You lavished perfect consciousness.

So many a season has gone by subsequently;
So much stream of water has merged into the sea.
Smiled and been shed have gone blooms aplenty,
Subject to no reckoning, mixed with time's abyss.

Since that same moment,[nb 3] I am expectant;
I have kept on counting the minutes, the seconds.[nb 4]
Wounded by fatigue, I've gotten prone to slumber;
My mental agony, does anyone fathom it?
