Even dreams wait for night-time
To appear in secret
You are in my heart, in the thing hidden within me
In secret my beloved

Let no one know how sorrowful I am
I carry this feeling around like my death
In my life’s most secret, secluded spots
There’s a place where my beloved sleeps, in secret

In secret, my beloved, bitter as life
Like the longing that fires my soul yet
I yearn in the depths of annihilation
For my beloved…in secret
