When the Gopis heard that Rama-Krishna were to go to Mathura, they were filled with anguish. They had never before been separated from the two brothers. They began to blame their destiny, "God, You are merciless. First you allow us to meet, but then You separate us before our hopes and aspirations have been fulfilled. This play of Yours is like a child's game."

Aho vidhaatastava na kvachid dayaa
Samyojya maitryaa pranaye 'na de 'hinah,
Taanshchakritaarthaan viyunankshyapaarthakam
Vikreeditam te 'rbhakache 'shtitam yathaa. 10.39.19.

The Gopis further said, "Oh, God, we know that Akrura is not to be blamed for the turn of events - it is your cruelty. It is you, who have come in the form of Akrura and are snatching away the eyes, which you gave to us. You should not do this."

Kroorastvamakroorasamaakhyayaa sma nashchakshurhi dattam harase
bataagyavat,
Ye 'naikade 'she 'khilasargasaushthavam tvadeeyamadraaksham vayam
Madhudvishah. 10.39.21.

Lamenting in this manner, the Gopis became deeply agitated by just the prospect of being separated from Shri Krishna. They began to weep, calling out, "Oh, Govind! Oh, Damodar! Oh, Madhav!" They wept all through the night.

The following morning, Akrura completed his routine ablutions, and harnessed the horses. Balaram-Krishna left, leaving behind Yashoda Maiya and all other Gopis weeping profusely.
