Radhas Love Song 01

English version of the Radha’s Love Song   1/2  Prelude on page 2

Those swinging trees and birds flying in the sky,
Those green creepers and the lovely Gokul*  hills,
Amid which, we used to play and get lost,  
In listening and feeling your enchanting flutes and charms, O Krishna*,
The bank of Yamuna* and your playing of flutes, 
They all looks deserted without your magical tunes.  01

Everything of Gokul* have become tired, in waiting for you O, Krishna*, 
Although ages have passed, only my eyes are still not tired, 
While waiting for a glimpse of your enchanting looks, 
Please come and show me at least your face, O, Mohan*,
Now even the water streams, running from our eyes too, 
Are at the edge of getting dried, while showering the tears,
In waiting for you for such a long time, O Mohan. 02

The lamp of hope only,  is still burning, O Krishna
Ever since you left, all other supports have vanished in the air,
Still if you cannot come to Gokul*, 
Just do not come,
But please do not send anyone to console my suffering heart,
By giving me false assurances and 
The teachings of sacrifice and patience, O Krishna. 03

Please do not send anyone,   to make me understand,
That you cannot return to Gokul,
Leaving the affairs of your Kingdom, O Krishna,
These efforts would only break the barrier of my patience,
Bursting those feelings, which have accumulated 
In the reservoir of my love since ages,
And do not break my false hopes that you would come one day
As it the last and the only Hope of my life and living,
O Mohan, my most beloved sakha* and love, O Krishna. 04
