Neela Maalakhe

(Translation on request for T17)
A beautiful song about indecisive but longing love from the movie Porinju Mariam Jose.

To listen to the song, click play:

Neela maalaakhe nin mounam ullaake
oru thulaamazha aayi chaarunnu peythu theerathe
[Hey blue angel your silence, inside (me)
is incessantly pouring down like a monsoon rain]
Kaalam oronnum padi chaari maanjaalum
mathivaraa manam aayi njaan ennum kaathu nilkkunnu
[Even when each day passes by crossing the doorstep
with an unquenched heart, forever I wait for you]

Vicharam kedaathe thee pakarnnu uyiril
oralil enne en jeevan aazhnaliye
[With never extinguishing thoughts lighting fire in my soul
when my life since ages, fuses deeply with one person]
Hrudayathaalam urukidunnu aaraarum kelkkathullil
[My heart beat melts silently inside me]

Vennilaavin…neela maalakhe nin mounam ullaake
oru thulaamazha aayi chaarunnu peythu theerathe
[Hey blue angel of moonlight, your silence, inside (me)
is incessantly pouring down like a monsoon rain]
Kaalam oronnum padi chaari maanjaalum
mathivaraa manam aayi njaan ennum kaathu nilkkunnu
[Even when each day passes by crossing the doorstep
with an unquenched heart, forever I wait for you]

Pidayunnille ninnilum parayaan aaka nombaram,
neeraazhathil aararum kaana muthaayi?
[Isn’t there an indescribable pain writhing inside you too,
like a pearl in the deep water which no one can see?]
Janalilooden raakinaavil arike vannille?
Pularuvolam thammil oro kadha paranjille?
[Didn’t you come close in my dreams through the window?
Didn’t we share many stories until the sun came up?]
Kaalam oronnum padi chaari maanjaalum
mathivaraa manam aayi njaan ennum kaathu nilkkunnu
[Even when each day passes by crossing the doorstep
with an unquenched heart, forever I wait for you]

Vidaanum thodaanum aayidaathe ulaye,
nilaavaayi orma poo veena paathakalil
[Wavering (with the decision of) whether to let go or to touch
on the paths where flowers of memories fell like moonlight]
idavidathe ila pozhinje poovaaka pole mammal
[we ceaselessly shed leaves like a poovaaka* tree]

Kaalam oronnum padi chaari maanjaalum
Mathivaraa manam aayi njaan ennum….
[Even when each day passes by crossing the doorstep
with an unquenched heart, forever I…]

* Poovaaka/GulMohar is a flowering tree native to India.
