My Love, I will keep you hidden in my eyes; I will thread your image like a gem on my joy and hang it on my bosom.
You have been in my heart ever since I was a child, throughout my youth, throughout my life, even through all my dreams.
You dwell in my being when I sleep and when I wake up. Know that I am a woman and bear with me when you find me wanting. For I have thought and thought and know for certain that all is left for me in this world is your love and if I lose you for a moment, I die.
Someone says, “Be tender to her who is yours in life and death.”
