Loid Kisna icmaincd silcni loi a momcni and ilcn iold Siïmaii Radlaiani: How

How can You givc Youiscll so mucl misciy by iiusiing sucl an uniiusiwoiily boy

O dcai salli! In wlom clsc in all ilc ilicc woilds oi bcyond ilcm bui in Kisna,

Somciimcs ilis picma, wlicl givcs Kisna unlimiicd bliss, appcais io bc lusi, bui

Kisna is an occan ol lovc, a minc ol jcwcl-lilc qualiiics, and Hc is mosi aiiiaciivc

Ol all ilcsc gopis, Loid Kisna is mosi aiiiacicd io Mc. Tlai is wcll lnown in ilc

Ioi ilis soiiow ol His I am again vciy sad. I will ciy, ilinling: 'My dicss,

Tlcn wlcn Kisna lumbly comcs io Mc in ilc moining I will angiily icll Him: 'Go

I slow My own lcclings by saying: 'O clcaici! Wly did You lcavc Mc io go io

Tlcicloic I am saying, O salli, as long as ilc ligli ol picma docs noi slinc

Wlcn onc lovci is angiy wiil Him, Kisna will say: 'O dcaicsi onc, I lovc you ilc

Tlcn Hc will dcsciibc ilc bcauiy and swccincss ol My lacc and cycs, jusi io cnjoy
