Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.4.70:

श्री-हनुमान् उवाच—
मुनि-वर्य कथं श्रीमद्-रामचन्द्र-पदाम्बुजैः ।
हीनं रोदयसे दीनं नैष्ठुर्य-स्मारणेन माम् ॥ ७० ॥

śrī-hanumān uvāca
muni-varya kathaṃ śrīmad-rāmacandra-padāmbujaiḥ |
hīnaṃ rodayase dīnaṃ naiṣṭhurya-smāraṇena mām || 70 ||

Śrī Hanumān said: O most exalted of sages, I am poor and insignificant. I am separated from the service of Bhagavān Śrī Rāmacandra’s lotus feet. Why are you making me remember that separation and causing me to weep?

Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda

(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)

The meaning of the translation is clear.
