The Child Inside you- Bengali Poem Translation for Holi Festival ( Festival of Colour)
If someday you lose your way and accidentally stray –
Far away from home, the place where your stay.
You’ll see them playing under a tree’s shadow –
An ancient solitary tree that stands in the meadow.
Are those kids for real? You know what they mean –
Eternal childhood is never lost, but it remains unseen.
Children hidden within us are like stars during the day,
You can’t see or hold them; try as much as you may.
Longingly you look at those happy kids, their laughter chime,
You know those are not kids, but the childhood of yours and mine.
