when it is time to die ....lyrics


The malayalam film Spirit directed by Ranjith has an unforgettable song in it ,lyrics are by Rafiq Ahmed  and was sung by Unni Menon

Melancholic and soul caressing lyrics I attempted to translate it for a wider audience as below

 

My Translation

 

In  the moment when  death reaches me please sit by my side for some time

To caress with my fingers numb with the hot coal heaped on me your  skin as its last touch

So that my last breath taken into me is filled with  your fragrance

When the moment death reaches me please sit by my side for some time

 

So as I close my eyes for the last time your vision is imprisoned in it forever

 that my ears which will hear no more melodies will finally shut by hearing your voice

 Your feelings can drench my body  burning  then with all  its knowledge  and its memories

When the moment  death reaches me please sit by my side for some time

 

So that  my lips scalded by your kisses can close spelling your name for the last time

My love ……let my soles cool by remembering its path to you

That’s is all needed for this body of mine covered by the earth to spring forth as a flower

 

In  the moment  death reaches me please sit by my side for some time …………….

 

 

The Malayalam version

Maranamethunna nerathu neeyente- arikil ithiri neram irikkane
kanalukal kori maravicha viraluka- orduvil ninne thalodi shamikkuvaan
oduvilaayi akathekkedukkum shwasa- kanikayil ninte ghandhamundaakuvaan

Maranamethunna nerathu neeyente- arikil ithiri neram irikkane ini

thurakkendathillatha kankalil priyathe nin mukham mungi kidakkuvaan oru swaram polumini edukkathoree chevikal nin swara mudhrayaal mooduvaaan arivumormayum kathum sirasil nin- haritha swachasmaranakal peyyuvaan Maranamethunna nerathu neeyente- arikil ithiri neram irikkane adharamaam chumbanathinte murivu nin madhura naam japathinaal kooduvaan pranayame ninnilekku nadonnoren vazhikal orthente paadham thanukkuvaan -2 athu matheeyudalmoodiya mannil ninnu pulkkodiyaayuyirthelkkuvaan
