Pining regretfully

(1644)  Man cahe herivare tomare

Mind yearns for seeing Thee;
My eyes cannot, due to shyness.
Blocks insurmountable betide and surround me,
Abashed by reflection on my many defects.

Inside flower's petals I had been;
But beset by insect-bites, I departed.
In the blossom with its nectar I had been;
For black bees I became a morsel.
I arrived with the daylight;
That light veiled by blindness I retired.

Now You are my only haven;
Do come smiling, fulfilling vain aspiration.
All the love of my heart
To You I gave till it was exhausted.
