Kabe ami baire elum is the 719th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Kabe ámi báire elum
Tomári gán geye
Bhule gechi se kon prahar
Kon rauṋe ráuṋá priitid́or
Kon prerańáy kon eśańay
Sumukhe tákiye

Hayto takhan megher áṋdhár
Hayto bá váner kharadhár
Hayto sedin ráte dine
Keu chilo ná ceye

Pather káṋt́ár páne ceye
Hayto bá keṋdechi bhaye
Hayto vipad tuccha kare
Calechi egiye

কবে আমি বাইরে এলুম
তোমারই গান গেয়ে
ভুলে গেছি সে কোন্‌ প্রহর
কোন্‌ রঙে রাঙা প্রীতিডোর
কোন্‌ প্রেরণায় কোন্‌ এষণায়
সুমুখে তাকিয়ে

হয়তো তখন মেঘের আঁধার
হয়তো বা বানের খরধার
হয়তো সেদিন রাতে দিনে
কেউ ছিলো না চেয়ে

পথের কাঁটার পানে চেয়ে
হয়তো বা কেঁদেছি ভয়ে
হয়তো বিপদ তুচ্ছ করে
চলেছি এগিয়ে

Long back outside did I come,
Singing only Your song.
Forgotten have I the hour that was
And the color of Your fair strand of love.
With what inspiration and ambition
Was I looking forward?

Perhaps, at that time, the clouds were dark;
Or maybe the floodtide was harsh.
Perhaps at that time, that night or day,
None else was there to take my place.

Looking at the thorns along my way,
Maybe I wept out of dismay.
Perhaps, holding danger in contempt,
I have marched ahead.
