Oh my friend KIRAVANI! How long have I been suffering
the affliction of Cupid?
Due to the absence of SRI PADMANABHA, who reposes on the serpent.
Cupid is raining the arrows on me. Even the pleasant rays of moon are
red hot for me. Oh friend with beautiful eyes! I am wallowing in the
midst of ocean of my longing. The night is at an end. When will my lover
come and embrace, and fulfill my desire? When will this affliction given
by Cupid be cured?
A day stretches like An aeon. Even the cool breeze has become my enemy.
I contemplate the dark and cloud like form of my lover and become restless
oh MADHUMOZHI! His interest in me is decreasing. He has interest in
someone else. I am becoming thin. Alas! How my lover has changed like
Would you go and tell him my anguish? May be He will show a little bit
of compassion. Will he leave is anger and embrace my bosom and enchant
me? Even the day and night is not enough for our amorous sport and He
is yet to come. Will not Cupid help me? Will my desire fulfil before
the night ends? Will you bring along my lotus-eyed Lord with you to me?
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
