Where Has My Love Gone? ( A Mystical Love Song)

Swami Kriyananda
January 1, 1980

Sung by Swami Kriyananda, in a concert in Germany approx. 1980.

Lyrics:

1. Where has my love gone?

Long are the nights,

Now that she’s left me,

Dimmed my delights.

Where is my love, friend?

Passed she this way?

Saw you her smile?

Ah! What did she say?

Ah! Passed she here?

My sweetheart, passed she here?

 

2. Sweet was her promise

When first we met;

Whispers of heaven

Made me forget

Heartaches and labors,

Earth-searing pain.

“Rest now,” she said,

“You’ve found love again.”

Ah! Passed she here?

My sweetheart, passed she here?

 

3. Surely she lied not.

Heaven did shine,

Piercing the darkness:

Love then was mine!

Could she not linger?

Must even she

Rise and depart

Like mist on the sea?

Ah! Passed she here?

My sweetheart, passed she here?

 

4. Life’s made of dreams, friend:

Dreams that must break,

Quickly dispersing

When we awake;

Strange, that when love calls

Memory stays,

Crying across

The tides of our days!

Ah! Passed she here?

My sweetheart, passed she here?

 

5. There by my bed

She left me a note.

Can you explain

These words that she wrote?

“Seek me,” she said, “love,

Out on the sea:

Boundless the reaches

Of true love must be.”

Ah! Passed she here?

My sweetheart, passed she here?
