La maja dolorosa No. 2

Language: Spanish (Español)

¡Ay majo de mi vida,
no, no, tú no has muerto!
¿Acaso yo existiese
si fuera eso cierto?

¡Quiero, loca, besar tu boca!
segura, gozar más de tu ventura,
¡ay!, de tu ventura.

Mas, ¡ay!, deliro, sueño:
mi majo no existe.
En torno mío el mundo
lloroso está y triste.
¡A mi duelo no hallo consuelo!
Mas muerto y frío siempre el majo será mío.
¡Ay! Siempre mío.
