Icelandic

Þér ég unni

Þér ég unni þúsund nætur
þúsund nátta sól.
Nú mun ef að líkum lætur
verða langt í skjól.
 
Brostu til mín blíðu eitt,
bara eitt sinn enn.
Ekkert þrái ég jafn heitt
á meðan ég brenn

English translation

I loved you

I loved you a thousand nights
a thousand solar nights.
Now I will most likely
be far from the shelter.
 
Smile to me gently once,
just one more time.
I yearn for nothing as much
as I am burning down

Author's comments:

Lines 3 and 4 are pretty difficult to translate and I'm open to corrections from a native speaker of Icelandic!

The author of translation requested proofreading.
It means that he/she will be happy to receive corrections, suggestions etc about the translation.
If you are proficient in both languages of the language pair, you are welcome to leave your comments.
