T'amo, mia vita

Language: Italian (Italiano)

T'amo, mia vita» la mia cara vita
dolcemente mi dice, e 'n questa sola
sí soave parola
par che trasformi lietamente il core,
per farmene signore.
O voce di dolcezza, e di diletto!
Prendila tosto, Amore;
stampala nel mio petto.
Spiri solo per lei l'anima mia;
T'amo, mia vita»  la mia vita sia.

"Te amo, vida mía" mi amada vida

Language: Spanish (Español) after the Italian (Italiano)

"Te amo, vida mía" mi amada vida 
dulcemente me dice, y sólo con esa 
tan suave palabra
parece transformar de alegría el corazón,
para hacerme su señor.
¡Oh, voz de dulzura y de deleite!
Tómala pronto, Amor;
estámpala en mi pecho. 
Que mi alma respire tan solo por ella;
que “Te amo vida mía” sea mi vida.
