Este i dos påtman kanai-ho / lamasa-mo an para un chocho
I kattre-mo an para un maigo' / este ta'lo i pecho-ko.
These two palms of my hands / is your table for when you eat
your bed for when you sleep / is also my chest.

A romantic verse, where the man professes to the woman of his dreams that he will provide for all her needs.

There may be the idea, too, that, though he is poor in material goods, he will use his very body to make up for what he cannot materially provide.

Thus, he is willing to sacrifice his own body for her.  Such is his strong love for her.
