Sweet Song Of Love
Confessions Of Krishna - 3
I heard your voice entranced
But couldn't see you in the mist
Yet I know it was you
Since such sweet song will come only from you
I could feel the love in your heart
I could feel the thirst in your mind
I know your love is eternal
And you can never leave me alone.
I did not vanish as you believed
I was entrapped
By life’s harsh realities
And it's stringent responsibilities
We were far apart separated by oceans
Yet close in our emotion
I know you were sad by the separation
Which immersed you in deep desperation
I dreamt of you in my weary sleep
Which left sad songs from the reeds
But how could you hear it
From that far remote land
How I wish to take your face in my hands
To see love's weeping in your fathomless eyes..
To sooth the tremblings in your lips
To calm the tides in your cheeks
How I wish to smooth your shivering
By hugging you tight
And to hear some words
That you love me and will never leave me again.
(This is an imaginary poem written as narrated by God Krishna to his childhood love Radha, to show how sublime and deep his love was.)

that divine music, as described in epics.
