TRANSLATION

1) Overcome with feelings of separation, He stays awake the whole night.

 

2) He meditates on You. Without You, Krsna is very unhappy.

 

3) Bewildered, He embraces His yellow cloth. He thinks the cloth is You.

 

4) He cannot taste any sweetness. Fainting, He falls to the ground.

 

5) His heart is tossed to and fro by Kamadeva's waves. His limbs are bent.

 

6) He speaks broken words in a choked voice. Govinda dasa does not understand what has happened to Him.

This song is sung in Raga Suhai.
