Come back, Oh Lotus-eyed Lord!

Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord,

where have You gone!?

Why did you abandon me?

I remember all those sleepless nights,

when we danced till the end of time.

I remember all those sleepless nights,

when You never let me go.

I remember all those sleepless nights,

when You were my life and soul.

Alas, You have disappeared!

‘Come back!…Come back!’-

my heart shouts out into the darkness of the night.

Alas, You have disappeared!

‘Oh, Devi, Oh, Swamini, please help me!

You Are my only hope!’

‘Bring Him back, Bring Him back!’

My eyes are full of lust to see His beautiful smile,

My heart is jumping up and down to embrace Him once again!

Tears flowing down my cheeks!

Alas, when will I hear His playful flute once again!

Oh, Swamini You are my only hope, my only shelter,

please bring Him back!

A beggar- that’s what I have become!

I beg, I beg, I beg!

I chant, chant, chant!

Alas, Alas, His ways are sometimes cruel!

He comes, He walks away, He comes, and He walks away again!

Oh, dear Friend, make Him stay, make Him stay!

For one more moment,

For one more glance,

For one more embrace!

Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord,

where have you gone!?

Come back…
