Sweet tiredness

(1269)  Amar krsna kothay bal re

Where is my Krsna, do tell me,
You please tell me, tell me please!
In myrtle bower and in kadam arbor,
I don't see Him anywhere.

Becoming sorrowful from always roaming,
Crying constantly, in search I journey.
Upon eye-water I do float, upon my love's overflow,
Even though to catch Him He did not permit.

On the banks of Jamuna, in its smiling blue waters,
His reflection I pursue, filled with fervent emotion.
My days elapse upon the wings of a goose,[1]
With many tunes of weariness.

  1. The search for my elusive Lord is all-consuming and exhausting. Yet somehow it is also blissful.
