Shondha malothi jobae when evening met the arrangement of clouds, blossoms appeared.

Shondha malothi jobae when evening meets the arrangement of clouds phulo bonae jhurae blossoms cover the earth and all of its inhabitants.  Kae aashi bajalae bashi bhoirobee shurae, Who comes with a melodious flute playing the raag bhairavi (morning)? Shajer purno chaandae oruno bhabhiya, the dressed up moon believes it is born again. Papiya probhathi shurae uthilo gahiya , the songbird wakes up singing pleasingly. Bhorer komol bhaebae, believing it to be morning its yearning shaajer shapla phulae, descends on the bejewelled Shapla flower.  Kunjore bhromor dhurae dhurae, In the gardens, the bumble bee spreads the Shapla flower’s scent far and wide. Shaajer shopna kunjonae, with pregnant dreams bikaler shaadher dhaka, the evening orders what must be fulfilled chilo bono bhumi, the safety of our homes among forests.  Shokaler mollika phutailae thumi,  You who have raised  morning’s plume rangilo shaadh rongae of bright red ghodhuli logono, brought about auspicious times shonaalae  ashaar bani of hope’s story biroho bidhurae for the forlorn everywhere.

May you be blessed by God’s healing breath. Theri Saso Sae. In memorare to the fallen of God’s one own, Rabbi Raziel Shevach, who will have overcome life’s cruel and unexpected turns.

Haulae haulae, softly thu kadham barda take a step meri jaan toward me beloved God, ethna bhi youun na dar therae, do not be afraid i am here with you sang mae haan chaltha rahoon, a partner and should you accept me, a companion for life my God. Jab thalak hai bani mujhae mae meri jaan, when you and I are separated my love mushkil hai suna safar yae bada, I understand this is because of  the journey that was very difficult bar sang mae therae merae hai khuda, yet on the other side of life, death, we will find each other again, I will see you again my God.  Sapna saja hai kal kissnae dekha, the dream of your gloriness is far away phir sae naya chal meri jaan, yet when revealed it is understood as life. Chal meri jaan, sochae bina, chal maeri jaan, foolishly let us  begin and end this contract called life. Jag tho hai bada zulmi ieza, the world after all is too big to comprehend even for us eiski na suun yae hai kisi ka bina thus, do not listen to it call thora yakeen tho rukh merae humnava, you too can use the same discretion Love. Khud pae zara lafzo sae thu kar, Use this knowledge to free me, a lowly and unknowing human being from the world of bondage. Khushi ko baya jo bhi sanam, the happiness that was stolen from us will be returned I am certain as this is our story, God.  Bhul ja jalkae basa, Together we can forget the incomprehensible world ever existed lae hum kahin apna jahan, so that we may chart out a path for ourselves chal meri jaan, come take me with you, God.  Ho pal jo bhi humnae gavaayae, every second that I lost being without you  aaa unka har jana bharkae complete it by bringing that knowledge home aanae valae palko manayae, or how else can I care for the second that is almost here.  Aur unko dukh bana kae huum jeelae,  as such let us make grief our happiness har khushi ko hum jeelae sufilae, and live out our lives like the saintly sufi, aae kae thujhae chal meri jaan, once and for all.  I will then have also captured you.  Dukhna bana har khushi sufilae, I promise a different life for you, a better one, one that a sufi saint would approve of.  Ek thujhae kae aaaa chal meri jaan, therefore sochae bina, foolishly haulae haulae and softly, so softly thu kadham bada, take a step toward me meri jaan beloved, eithna bhi youun na dar therae sang, now that as man I am close to you once more.  Mae haan chaltha rahoon jab thalak hai bani mujhae mae, this warring life that never sought peace came from hate. Therefore, I entreat you for a divorce and so that we can build a better life together today, O God.
