Helpless love

(301)  Asbe bale gecha je cale

On going, You said You would return;
Tell me, why did You not come?
Into dust, into dust have crumbled
The flower petals composing Your garland.

Callous Lord, what is this liila of Thine—
A strange new game of friendship's guile?
Having gone away, why then do You remain
Awake in my mind, day and night?

As much as I want to forget, forget I cannot;
Wherever I look, I see tokens of Your splendor.
Why have you bound me with a fanfare of tunes,
Thoughts born on the strings of mind's violin?

  1. A song of complex longing... sometimes we feel betrayed – sometimes we feel forced to surrender to Him – but somehow that feeling is still sweet.
