ār koto kāl, giridhārī lāl
ārāle ārāle robe
(āmār) nayaneri jāl jhare abirol
daraśana dibe kabe
tomār caraṇa prabhu niyechi śaraṇa
pujār kusūm sama ei tanu-mana
ākul ādhāre maramīre ei āśā
tabe ki biphale habe
ārāle thākiye priya bājāo he bāńśarī
tāhāra madhura svare sakali pāńśarī
dekha jadi nāhi dibe ogo nīrdoy
tabe keno dile āśā bhoriyā hṛdoy
mirār parāne tomāri kāmanā
kabe ogo saphala habe
1) After how long will I see You, O darling Giridhari Lal? Until then, I will simply remain here, waiting and waiting! Tears are flowing incessantly from my eyes. O when will You give me Your glance?
2) O dear Lord, I have surrendered my mind and body, as flowers for worship, to Your lotus feet. I have a plea. My heart is fervent based on such hope. Will they go unfulfilled?
3) As I wait behind for You, Oh please play Your flute, as Your flute contain all the sweet mellow melodic notes.
4) O Merciless One, if You don’t provide me Your glimpse, why did You fill my heart with such hope? O life and soul of Mira! My desire is only for You! When will my desire be fulfilled?
