Not without Him

(462)  Ami caridike dekhi notun haoya

On all sides I sense a new atmosphere,
Having new color and a new feel.
Oh, has He appeared; is He not here?
Tell me, tell me, tell me please.

Now, in forests and hills, a host of flowers
Was moved to dance, whiling away the time.
Today, my mind wants not to go indoors...
Oh, who is this magician that has arrived?

I've braided my hair with kadamba blossoms;
Yellow oleander I dangle on my ears.
Today, only alongside Him will I go home;
Before that, I won't leave; no, I won't leave.
