Behind tears a smile

(3028)  Priya amar bandhu amar

Oh Beloved mine, my Long-Time Friend,
Remote why do You abide?
By swing-sport of the tal and tamal trees,[1]
A kohl of clouds You apply.

Above a forest niche having gazed,
Along with You I remain.
But to the abyss of existence, that gloom same,
Myself why do You invite?

So much lightning comes and then it leaves;
A light-flash tallies with a moment brief.
But tie in heart of You and me,
You preserve it for all time.
