The Bright Star


O bright star of hope! I admire your beauty and glow
You stand out in the jamboree of twinkling stars of desires
As I see from my dwelling’s window your luminous face so bright
O light in the moonless night of my life how I love your sight!

You belong to kingdom of skies and I the domain of earth
Yet it is you that rules over the empire of my craving soul
Do not hide behind the curtain of my dark clouds of despair
As my eyes will open the floodgates of a catastrophic storm
The eyes that enliven with your beauty and your charm

My ship of life will be wrecked without the aid of your direction
You are the blossom of the withering garden of my dreams
Come to me my darling and fill the emptiness of my life
Without you my life is nothing but agony and strife

I recall my youthful days how playful girl I was!
In the game of hide and seek you peeped from the hole in cloud
I sang a passionate rhythmic song responding to your implore.
And rendered the profound poetry of Rabindra Nath Tagore

You are the one that bestows light to my imagination
I admire you most O Bright Star in the God’s entire creation
Though sometimes the hope you give is nothing but a mirage
But from the stark darkness of anguish better a flicker of hope
