birth, death

~
Your birthday dawns O Lord
a day of mixed emotions for me
above all of exuberant rejoicing
~
O Krishna! I’ve unconditionally adored YOU
from the beginning of time with each and
every besotted fiber of my being
~
You came,
You gave
you took from me, on your birthday
~
this crazy heart
sings and weeps
simultaneously
~
Ma adored you, as I adore you
before your very first taste of butter
you stole my beloved Ma from me
~
happy, sad
sad, happy, this heart of mine
Beats a joyous perplexed symphony
~
death is a given, it was your love and
kind Benevolence when your wee pudgy
newborn arms gave Ma’s soul eternal sanctuary
~
my Yashoda heart strains for glimpses of you
my makhan chor heart grieves for my ma
Do know, my crazy heart indelibly dyed
~
by your love has a brightly lit altar
housing you O my beloved Kanhaji
and your beloved Yashoda ma
~
