Bhakti

 

How can I not love You!?

You create and You annihilate,

You sustain and You slay,

You smile and You play,

You dance and You cry.

You are the inexhaustible, life-giving force to all living entities.

You are the seed-giving father and all caring mother.

You are the Sun in the sky and the Moon in the night.

You are the eternal time personified.

 

How can I not love You!?

You protect me and You maintain me,

You feed me and You wake me,

You invigorate me and You humble me,

You carry me and You guide me.

 

How can I not love You!?

They say You are infinite.

Once, You came as my mother.

You gave me this body, You raised me up, and You eternally loved me.

Once, You came as my father.

You gave me this body, You taught me, and You eternally loved me.

Once, You came as my friend.

We danced together, We sang together, and We played together.

Once, You came as my guru.

You opened my eyes, You gave me knowledge, and You showed me the way.

Once, You came as my lover.

You showed me what true love is, You showed me eternity, You made me dance in ecstasy.

You made me forget about death, You made me cry out of bliss, You nested yourself in my heart.

 

How can I not love You?!

When I see You in my heart, the whole world stops.

When I sing Your name, the sweet transcendental nectar flows.

When I meet Your devotees, fearless I become.

 

How can I not love You?!

Oh, God,

Oh Krishna, How can I not love You?!
