To be and not to be

(56)  Ke go tumi pathapashe danriye eka

Who are you all alone, standing by the wayside,
Your eyes so tearful, eyes so tearful?
Who are you all alone, gazing toward the sky,
Your arms raised upward, arms raised upward?

What you've wanted, you don't get;
What you've gotten, you don't want.
Your fervent, gut-yearnings are unsatisfied;
The love that filled your heart, it has gone dry.

To everyone you have viewed, you have given love;
From their side, you have received scorn.
You have lost everything, and what have you accomplished?
Your store is but a song, the song with which your throat is filled.
