In the Fetters of Melodies

Minnie first time
Aami tomaro shonge’ bedhechi aamaro praan
Shurero badhone’
Tumi Jano na
Aami tomare’ payechi ojana shadhone’

You know not
In the fetters of melodies
That I have bound my life with You

You know not
In what endeavors of merit unknown
That I have found You

(a very crude trans-creation of mine of a song by Tagore)
