I won't be blue

(2762)  Tandra jarano chilo ankhipate

Tangled with eyelids a drowsiness had been there;
In it brimming were the drops of tear.
I'd been crying, calling all the day through;
At the path of Your arrival I had been gazing.

Day retired, came the evening star;
Rosy complexion got lost in the dark.
Withered went my floral garland,
Upon which love's pollen had been smeared.

In a lifetime, hope after hope appears;
Yet ever they remain hushed in speech.
Lord, I won't get dejected, never forgetting You;
Attuned with thought, rhythm and song I'll keep.
