(254)  Mana bhese jay sajala haoyay

Mind goes on floating in the damp breeze,
Smeared with fragrance of magnolia.
The unknown lover, He is all the sweetness of life.
Fervently, I summon Him.

Why does He remain far afield;
Why does He not come near?
Oh why does He not gaze at me;
Why does He dance at a distance?
In His cadence and song, I go toward Him,
Who has kept Himself concealed.

No, no, no, He is not far away;
He is the one who loves me best.
In fortune and misfortune, He stays by my side;
Keeping out of sight, He smiles tenderly.
Though unknown, He is not unfamiliar;
About His liila, there's no more to grasp.
