TRANSLATION

(Refrain) O beautiful girl, the enchantment of your love for Him grew stronger and stronger. In the end you will pass this lifetime only in weeping.

 

1) When you heard the sweetness of Krsna's flute-music, I blocked your ears. When you gazed at Krsna's handsome form, I covered your eyes. You were very determined to be enchanted by Him.

 

2) For no reason you pined to attain Him. What has become of your body? Day after day the beauty of your body wasted away. Now even your life is in doubt.

 

3) In your heart you planted the tree of love for Him. You expected the dark rain cloud of Krsna would water that tree with its nectar rains. Alas! Now that tree is watered only with the tears from your eyes. This Govinda dasa says.
