Here's my attempt:
pallavi
kalpaka mAtA kanindaruL tA tA

Oh mother pArvati (kalpaka mAtA) [1], please grant (tA tA) your blessings (aruL) out of the tenderness of your heart (kanindu).

anupallavi
alpa vAzhvilE aDimaiyen manadai Asaip-pEygaL piDitt-ATTuvadozhiya (kalpaka mAtA...)

(Oh mother pArvati, grant me your blessings out of the tenderness of your heart) so that the distress (ATTuvadu) caused by the demons (pEygaL piDittu) of desire (Asai) in my (yen) mind (manadai), in the small/mean (alpa) life (vAzhvilE) of this servant/devotee (aDimai), may be relieved (ozhiya).

caraNam
kapaTa vESamiTTu naDippadu kaNDu karuttil unakku kOpamA ammA nin
kamala caraNam aladu vEru gati Edu kapAlISapriyE en tAyE
capala manadil unran tiruvaDi bhajanaiyait-tavira vEru ninaivu kanavilunDO
tanjam ammA ennai taLLi viDuvadu dayAnidhi unakku dharmamalla perumaiyalla

Oh mother (ammA), are you (unakku) angered (karuttil kOpamA) because you have seen (kaNDu) the phony (kapaTa) act (naDippadu) that I am putting on (vESamiTTu)? My (en) mother (tAyE), but for (alladu) your (nin) lotus (kamala)-like feet (caraNam), what (Edu) other (vEru) succor/refuge (gati) (do I have), oh beloved (priyE) of kapAliSA? Have I entertained (uNDO) thoughts (ninaivu) other than (tavira vEru) the worship (bhajaniyai) at your (unran) divine feet (tiruvaDi) in my fickle (capala) mind (manadil), even in my dreams (kanavil)? I seek refuge (tanjam) (in you), Oh mother (ammA); Oh repository of compassion (dayAnidhi) it is not morally right/appropriate (dharmam alla) for you (unakku) to push (taLLi viDuvadu) me (ennai) away, it is also beneath your dignity (perumai alla) (to do so).

[1] I think in mayilai, pArvati is worshipped as the giver of desired boons, hence the name kalpakam/karpak(g)am
