tuma re daraśana bina maiń to ho gayī bāvarī (hāń)

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) The road to Gokula is very far! Indeed it very very far! How is it possible for me to make it to your Gokula?

 

1) If I come in the night, then I will be afraid. If I come in the day, then everyone in the city will see me.

 

2) If I come with Your sakhis, then I will feel very shy. If I come alone, then I will forget the roadway to your town!

 

3) If I walk slowly, then my waist becomes tired. If I run quickly, then I will miss the path to Gokula!

 

4) Mira says to her courtly Lord “Giridhara”, “Without seeing You, I have become mad!”
