Priya Vanamali!Annatheyakkarute ivale…O Shoure (Krishna)! Please don’t make me an orphan!O thou who art the sole support of the abandoned!Please don’t make me an orphan!Birth after birth have I wandered through the desert of life,Searching for Thee,I’m but an unknown flower, faded and worn,Unknowingly I have reached thy doorstep,How can I offer myself to thee?How can I be used in they puja?O Shoure! (Krishna)! Help of the helpless! Please don’t abandon me!In the carnival of life I missed my wayAnd fell into a nightmare that lasted for eons!O Lord of Lakshmi! Wilt thou not stretch thy hand and haul me to the shore?O Ocean of compassion! Wilt thou not come running to save me?O thou delight of my eyes!Thou alone art my mother, husband, friend and relation,No sons or grandsons do I have other than thee!Having given up all my blood relations,I have sought refuge at thy feet alone,Will thou not accept me O Beloved Vanamali,Wilt thou not come running to me, my darling Vanamali!
