Meaning of the charana sahityam of revati thillana :

I have been waiting (kAttirundEn) all my life (kAlam ellAm) just to behold (kANa) the beautiful/handsome (kOla) murugan, but I am not sure (EnO) if it is artful pretence (jAlamO) on his part, or the consequence of my own karmA (kAlamO) that has made the spear-weilding Lord (vElanO) to have forgotten (marandAn) me (enai).
