Just one request

(1068)  Toma tare nishi jaga

Because of You I've been awake at night,
Gazing at that pathway Thine.
You did not appear.
You were in an unfamiliar sphere,
You went to some strange station;
You left without a word.

So many days passed, many nights elapsed;
Withered is the jasmine[1] garland.
The flower in my hairbun's fallen off,
But You permitted no embrace at all.

To come or to remain I do not implore;
I take no offense should You ignore me more.
If You prefer, then stay always;
But don't forget my love.
