Eternal love

Come, dear Krishna! Fall in love with my love for you. When my honey- filled glance dips your unsurpassed beauty, fall in love with my eyes. Fall in love with my imperishable ardour for you. When my feet dance to the tunes of your flute, fall in love with the music of my anklets. You are the colossal cosmos and I'm an infinitesimal splinter You are the sweetness in a mellowed fruit and I'm the wrinkle on a withered flower. You are the dream of every soul and I'm a forsaken lonely petal But, oh darling! when you assimilate me into you, we become one. Melt in the music of my longing for you Fill the flute of my desolate heart with your benign breath Kindle my lame soul with the shimmer of your smile Let's sing, let's swing and let's dissolve in this darkness tonight.

A beautiful sensual, yet pure love song, calling on the essence of the Hindu tradition condensed into a personal relationship. Very impressive, Swetha.
