Radha’s separation

It is believed that Radha, the consort of Krishna, truely fell in love with him, after Krishna left Vrindavan and settled in Dwarka. Here is a song, written by Radharaman Dutta of Sylhet, that depicts her emotions:

Bhromor Koio Giya

Bhromor koio giya
Sri Krishno biccheder onole…
Ongo jay joliya re
bhromor koiyo giya 

O Honey bee, go and tell
Being separated from Sri Krishna,
my body burns in the fire of severence
O Honey bee, go and tell

O Bhromor re …

Koiyo koio koyo-re bhromor
Krishno re bujhaiya (2)
Mui Radha moira jaimu re..
Krishna hara hoiya re
Bhromor koio giya

O Honey bee go and explain to Him
I, Radha, will wither away and die
If I cannot be united to Krishna.
O Honey bee, go and tell

Bhromor koiyo.. giya…
Sri Krishno biccheder onole…
Ongo jay joliya re
bhromor koiyo giya 

O Honey bee, go and tell
Being separated from Sri Krishna,
my body burns in the fire of severence
O Honey bee, go and tell

O Bhromor re …

Agey jodi jantam re bhromor
Jaiba re chariya
Mathar kishor du bhag kore
Rakhitam bandhiya re
Bhromor koiyo giya

If I knew ahead of time
that He would leave me
Parting my long hair in two strands
I would have kept him tied.

Bhromor Koio Giya
Sri krishno biccheder onole..
Ongo jay joliya re
Bhromor koiyo.. giya…

O Bhromor re …

Bhaibe Radharaman bole
Shuno re kaliya
Nibha chilo moner agun re..
Ke dilo jalaiya re
Bhromor koiyo giya

Radharaman speaks after deliberation
Listen o Kalia, the fire in my mind had been smouldering..
Who inflamed it again ?
O Honey bee, go and tell

Bromor koiyo.. giya…
Sri Krishno biccheder onole.ee…
Ongo jay joliya re
bhromor koiyo giya 

O Honey bee, go and tell
Being separated from Sri Krishna,
my body burns in the fire of severence
O Honey bee, go and tell
