Darling of my heart! The one with a beautiful name. One of leonine valor, residing in Ayodhya! Having eyes like red lotus! Wandering in quest of you I have become worn out and emanciated. Yet there is no sign of mercy. What is the use of arguing with you? I am passionately in love with you and I engage myself in serving you. That you do not appear to accept my service must be due to my irrevocable destiny. When I have prepared a downy bed for you to sleep, you complain pitilessly. You seem to be guided by the status of a devotee, not by the genuineness of his devotion, when this bias is foreign to you and your race, I have no alternative but to bide my time patiently until you choose to favor me. How beautiful you are like the full moon.
