My Song by Rabindranath Tagore

This song of mine will wind its music around you, my child, like the fond arms of love.

This song of mine will touch your forehead like a kiss of blessing.

When you are alone it will sit by your side and whisper in your ear, when you are in the crowd it will fence you about with aloofness.

My song will be like a pair of wings to your dreams, it will transport your heart to the verge of the unknown.

It will be like the faithful star overhead when dark night is over your road.

My song will sit in the pupils of your eyes, and will carry your sight into the heart of things.

And when my voice is silent in death, my song will speak in your living heart.

  1. I greatly like this poem by Rabindranath Tagore. I’ve read a few other poems by him which didn’t make much of an impression on me, but this one makes me want to read more. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
