Sri Banke Bihari ji ke sawaiya, 18 of 144

१८.
राधिका कान्ह को ध्यान धरैं, तब कान्ह ह्वै राधिका के गुण गावैं ।
त्यों अँसुवा बरसैं बरसाने को पाती लिखैं लिखि राधे को ध्यावैं ॥
राधे ह्वै जायँ घरीक में ‘देव’ सु प्रेम की पाती लै छाती लगावैं ।
आपने आप ही में उरझैं सुरझैं , उरझैं, समुझैं समुझावैं ॥

This Braj sawaiya verse by poet Prem, says:

Radhika in her love for Krishna, begins to feel as Krishna and longs for Radhika. Tears of longing for Radha fill her eyes and she writes a letter for her and sends it to Barsana. Then quickly comes back to being Radhika and takes the letter and embraces it, close to her heart. The poet Prem says, this is how she engages in her love for Krishna. She meditates on him and becomes one with Him :-) and doesn’t know the difference between herself and Krishna when she thinks of Him.
