There's a man I love

 "There’s a man I love"

There’s a man who possessed in him
An ocean that showed millions of people
A sun for which all were ready to die
All men wanted to sacrifice their dreams
Because of the dream the man had
In his mind being all men’s dream

All the rivers flowing to the heart
Of the Bay of Bengal sang one song,
Here’s my blood ready for you
Birds learnt the only word red
Farmers forgot to earn their bread
Every heart then fighting for green
For Bengal the mother ever green

Then everyone knew the appearance
Of a giant figure having a roaring voice
Enchanting millions of people to make
Them forget their life own for their mother

Heavily all the long days of 71 went by
There’s no water around as the rivers
Died out of the thirst for a new sun
To rise with the new colour green

Then the long awaited sun rose
In the east of Bengal all could see
But the three millions who did want
The sun to rise but had no dream to see!
