GSIS VIII: 475

Composed for another when [Ōe no] Yoshitoki left, having become Governor of Tsushima.

厭はしきわが命さへ行く人の歸らんまでと惜しくなりぬる

itoFasiki
wa ga inoti saFe
yuku Fito no
kaFeran made to
wosiku narinuru
Even the suffering
That is my life,
Until he, who leaves,
Returns, will be
All the more pitiable.

Lady Sagami
