मीरा तु कृष्णविरहं प्राप्य दुःखितमानसा |
विहाय भोजनं पानं नितरां कार्श्यमाप सा ||
प्रलपन्ती विनिद्रा सा मलिना चिन्तयान्विता |
निःश्वसन्ती च रुदती विलुठन्ती शुशोच ह ||
विद्यानाहूय तां मीरां दर्शयामास तत्पिता |
उवाच मीरा कृच्छ्रेण पितरं चिन्तयाssकुलम् ||
Meera was suffering pangs of separation from Lord Krishna. Forgoing food and milk she became lean. Forgoing sleep Meera was heaving deep sighs of sorrow. Weeping in distress and rolling on the ground, she grieved, her body wrapped with dust. Her father brought the doctors to treat her. Meera spoke thus to her distressed father.
