TRANSLATION

1) Now I am overcome with love for Him. How can I understand what has happened to me?

 

2) When I see Him, my peaceful composure is broken into pieces. I cannot bear being tossed to an fro by the waves of the anguish of separation from Him.

 

3) O gopi-friend, how can I turn away from Krsna? I do not know. It is as if I am burning in the midst of flames. My heart is enchanted by Him.

 

4) You gopi-friends are very wise. What wise words can I speak to you?

 

5) Ah! I am so overcome with longings. I feel that soon I will lose my life.

 

6) Please write a letter. Place my request before Krsna.

 

7) Only if I can meet Krsna will I stay alive. Govinda dasa says: O gopi girl, in this song I sing your glories.
