Parting continued:

 

Who will look after me when you're gone

Who will caress my mad fancies, wild desires

Who will put me to sleep with tender kisses

Oh! who will fulfil my life in thousands of ways

 

Who will quarrel with you on flimsy grand issues

Who will divine the innermost thoughts of the heart

When you fall sick, God forbid, and are lonely

Who will lie beside you and soak away all the heat

But she didn't stop me, didn't block my way

Didn't pull me back to hold in tight embrace

Didn't shout, ‘Stop! Don’t go away, dear!

Breaking, shattering, mine heart and life'

 

Where am I going? To bigger things in life

I'll fight for Dharm4 and friendship

To kingdoms and Geeta5 and Mahabharat6

Love is for mere mortals, let me be God!

 

I turn again at the top of the ladder

She's still waving ‘Good Bye, good bye, bye'

I cross over, I lose both my love and life

The plane moves and comes back again to take off

 

The engines whirl, Oh! the storms in my gasps

The engine runs wildly, as runs amuck my heart

Fleetingly I see her through tears and haze

Smooth lift and senseless I fly away upwards

 

Oh! I came a stranger, became the Dearest

Alas! I leave now, life, miserable life!

O heart! never, never, love a foreigner

I murmur, ‘God bless you, Good bye, Dearest!'

 

1=He wanted to go to heaven in mortal body.  He was sent upwards by the spiritual powers of a great sage.  But the gods pushed him down from above. He remained in the middle.

2=Beloved of Krishn.

3=The place where Krishn and Radha grew up.

4=Prescribed duty, religion.

5=Hindu religious and philosophical book. Krishn told it to Arjun (hero of Mahabharat, one of the five Pandavs brothers) at the start of the war when seeing his own relatives, friends, and teacher on the opposite side, Arjun said that winning the war after killing one’s beloved was not worth fighting.

6=The great war between cousin brothers Pandavs and Kauravs. Krishn helped Pandavs by becoming the charioteer of Arjun.

 

 

[THE END! Really?  But there is something before this also.  And Parting is not the end of Odyssey of Love.  Before this is: Pining; Meeting; Wooing; and Loving. After this is Uniting.  Read the complete love story:
