Shankha Vishwajanin
Shankha Vishwajanin in Bengali

I don't know what it is
Whenever I miss you too much
And my mind becomes very eager
To see you or just talk to you
I seemed to slow down
And hesitate to call you !

Doubts overshadow my feelings
Lest you don't appreciate my call!
Or I cannot express my true feelings
And may end up offending you !

As time goes by -
I feel even more hesitant and stiff
And feel stress from the notion of calling you.
Someone from inside asks me
To go for a long walk
To regain my thoughts and feelings!

As I come back from a long walk
I finally gain courage to call you
With my heart pounding
Each time the phone rings!

And then , suddenly, I hear your voice
Which I hear from within almost all the time
That sweet, simple, lovely and caring voice
Firm yet encouraging and affectionate
My soul gets very high
As if taking shower in the first rain
After a long drought summer.
