As the masters have said;
Ah me alas! whatever should I do? Love for thee I have none,
niether do I listen to or sing about thy glad tidings, nor ever
in the disciplines of vaisnava yoga engage. I have no knowledge,
nor do I perform good deeds and am without good pedigree.
Be that as it may, O beloved of the cowherd damsels, since
thou art the one who secures the needs of the needy, I am
assailed by acute pain caused by the insatiable and firmly
rooted hope of attaining thee. ( Bh.R.S. 1/3/34 also C.C. Madhya 23 )

kRSNa kRpA karibena - dRDha kari' jAni

The firm conviction that Krsna will certainly be gracious.

( C.C. Madhya 23 )

Vilapa Kusumanjali 102

O beautifuly thighed one! I pass the live-long day
in anxcious care, burdened by intence longing to
sport in the ambrosial ocean of your loving service.
If, after all, you do not bestow your mercy on me,
then what use to me are life, Vraja and even Bakari*?

Bakari - Krsna, the adversary of the asura Baka, the crane demon.
