However Far Away I Go

Wherever I go
However far,
There travels with me
Weaved in waves
The name of our river.

However far away I go.

Embedded in my eyelids
There remains
The neat courtyard
Painted with Lakshmi's footsteps

However far away I go.

(Translated from Bengali, A poem by Subash Mukhopadhyay)
