You are Hima’s son and I your wife
Sent to protect and save your life.
I harness the power of golden light
To ward off Yama’s venomous bite.
I place at the door of love’s threshold
Coins of silver and coins of gold
And light the diyas to dazzle the eyes
Of the god of death’s serpent disguise.
I sing melodious songs to captivate
The one who brings a prophesied fate
And by my deeds the divine is undone
For I am the wife of Hima’s son.
