By Ananda Vrindavan Devi Dasi

When will I walk

The path entering vrindavan

When will I be ready?

It waits for me

I see it in the shadows of

My early morning chants

When will I be fully turned

In the direction of that place

When will I be fully drawn in

When will I breathe no more

Of earthly desires and

Breathe fully the spirit

When will I hold still and be full

And be free

And really see
