Shankha Vishwajanin
Shankha Vishwajanin in Bengali

It's something we take for granted,
Each and every day that we live,
Sometimes we just keep on taking,
Without ever stopping to give.

Each moment that passes,
Seems to have no effect,
We don't even stop to realize,
How many times our paths intersect.

We are always rushing,
With a million tasks to complete,
We have dates and times and numbers to remember,
And of course there are people to meet.

Simple things we take for granted,
The sunset, family time, a smile,
But we must first be thankful for the basics,
Which make the bigger things more worthwhile.

Our time on earth is limited,
So we must savor everything that we do,
Make each day as successful as we can,
And be thankful that we are we.
