    oh…

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

    The 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 silenced in death,
    my song will speak in your living heart.

    (Tagore)
