Senza baci

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Fra poco ei tornerà, la bruna testa
Mi poserà sul core
E chiederà, fissandomi, se mesta,
Priva de' baci suoi vissi quest'ore.

Io gli risponderò: «Fanciullo, è muto
Il mio dolore istesso.
Lontan da te, lo sai, non ho vissuto.
Nelle tue braccia fà ch'io viva adesso!»

Sans baisers

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Dans peu de temps, il reviendra ; sa tête brune,
Il la posera sur mon cœur
Et demandera, en me fixant, si tristement,
Privée de ses baisers, j'ai vécu ces heures.

Moi je répondrai : mon enfant, muette est
Ma douleur elle-même.
Loin de toi, tu le sais, je n'ai pas vécu.
Dans tes bras fais que je vive maintenant.
