A lack of consideration

(1621)  Tumi bhalo besecho amare

Myself You have loved,
But I did not hold You dear.
So much You have given me,
But heart unsated, it craves more.

Not a thing to You I ever gave;
Not even by mistake any work of Yours I did.
I have wanted in a fashion just one-sided;
Disregarding shyness and shame.

I've called on You only when fallen into scrape,
As if freeing from danger is Your obligation.
Even so, You grasp my woe and have bestowed favor;
This debt, it never gets repaid.
