Awaking

Translated by Shamsul Faiz

I shall be waiting for you

Beside the highway.

In the full-moon night

You will look me

In the procession of fogs.

You are passing every milepost

That means you are leaving behind

The flying pollen of night,

Green paddy-fields, low lands

The light of glowing worms,

The silence of grass hoppers.

On which shoulder the country is moving forward

For that I am awaking.

The Bengali version was first published in the Eid issue of Daily Kalerkantha.
