In Reality - Poem by Ono no Komachi

In reality
You must do it, I suppose;
But even in my dreams, too,
Hiding from prying eyes,
To see you do that pains me so.

    うつつにはさもこそあらめ夢にさへ人めを守ると見るがわびしさ

    ututu ni Fa
    sa mo koso arame
    yume ni saFe
    Fitome wo moru to
    miru ga wabisisa

    In reality
    You must do it, I suppose;
    But even in my dreams, too,
    Hiding from prying eyes,
    To see you do that pains me so.
