मेरो मन अनत कहाँ सुख पावै।

मेरो मन अनत कहाँ सुख पावै।
जैसे उड़ि जहाज की पंछी, फिरि जहाज पै आवै॥
कमल-नैन को छाँड़ि महातम, और देव को ध्यावै।
परम गंग को छाँड़ि पियासो, दुरमति कूप खनावै॥
जिहिं मधुकर अंबुज-रस चाख्यो, क्यों करील-फल भावै।
‘सूरदास’ प्रभु कामधेनु तजि, छेरी कौन दुहावै॥

My mind is like a bird sitting on a ship in the sea. It files here and there but comes back again to that ship. Except Shyam Krishna, where else will my mind find happiness! Leaving that lotus-eyed Shri Hari, why should I worship other God! It will be only the most foolish person who will dig a well, leaving the most sacred Ganga! If a bumblebee has drunk the nectar of lotus, will it ever go to other flower! Soordas says, leaving the Kamdhenu, the Shyam Krishna, should I milk some other animal!
