|Antya-līlā||Chapter 17: The Bodily Transformations of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 17.59
"mana mora vāma-dīna, jala vinā yena mīna,
kṛṣṇa vinā kṣaṇe mari' yāya
kṛṣṇa-tṛṣṇā dviguṇa bāḍāya
mana mora — My mind; vāma-dīna — unagreeably poor; jala — water; vinā — without; yena — as if; mīna — a fish; kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; vinā — without; kṣaṇe — in a moment; mari' yāya — dies; madhura — sweet; hāsya — smiling; vadane — face; mana — the mind; netra — the eyes; rasa-āyane — very pleasing to; kṛṣṇa-tṛṣṇā — the thirst for Kṛṣṇa; dvi-guṇa — twice as much; bāḍāya — increases.
"If I do not think of Kṛṣṇa, My impoverished mind will die within a moment like a fish out of water. But when I see Kṛṣṇa's sweetly smiling face, My mind and eyes are so pleased that My desire for Him redoubles.
