Oh! quanto io t'amerei

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Oh! quanto io t'amerei, se la parola
Che timida ti volgo e paurosa
Potesse confidarti, che a te sola
Sacra è la fiamma nel mio core ascosa;
Oh! quanto io t'amerei!...

Oh! quanto io t'amerei, se un tuo sorriso
Mi ripagasse d'ogni mio sospiro:
Oh! quanto io t'amerei, se il mio deliro
Fosse un istante sol da te diviso;
Oh! quanto io t'amerei!...

Oh! se una volta un raggio solo amico
In me volgessi de la tua pupilla;
Se l'amore che m'arde e che non dico
In te accendesse solo una scintilla,
Oh! quanto io t'amerei!...

Oh! se potessi d'una mia carezza
Tutta coprirti, unico mio tesoro,
Come sul mare l'amorosa brezza
Copre di baci la tua chioma d'oro,
Oh! quanto io t'amerei!...
