My Friend, I Cannot Answer When You Ask Me To Explain - Poem by Vidyapati Thakur
My friend, I cannot answer when you ask me to explain
what has befallen me.
Love is transformed, renewed,
He has dwelt in my eyes all the days of my life,
yet I am not sated with seeing.
My ears have heard his sweet voice in eternity,
and yet it is always new to them.
How many honeyed nights have I passed with him
in love's bliss, yet my body
wonders at his.
Through all the ages
he has been clasped to my breast,
yet my desire
I have seen subtle people sunk in passion
but none came so close to the heart of the fire.
Who shall be found to cool your heart,
