Your little girl shall wait, Maa

Until next year…

The lanes won’t sparkle anymore…
With the empty pandals, shall ensue a year-long wait..
I shall wait to see you again Maa,
Until next year…

The sound of dhaak will slowly fade…
Shonkher-naad will continue to follow me…
To celebrate the glory and your victory,
I shall wait, until next year again…

The gorgeous laal-paar sarees will be neatly tucked away in the upper shelves…
Sheuli phooler gondho will continue to spread happiness…
To be lost in the joy of worshipping you…
I shall wait, until next year again…

A lamp shall glow, fireworks will light up the sky…
The warmth of your divine blessings will fill my heart with joy…
Until next year, till we celebrate again…

The eyes that sparkled with joy when I welcomed you, will now reflect,
A teary-eyed bittersweet wait…
Until next year, till I see you again…

Your idol is being immersed,
Your earthly identity of clay dissolves…
In my heart your essence lives on…
Your children shall wait, your home shall wait, your little girl shall wait…

Till she experiences the joy again…
Until next year…
