Lasciami! Lascia ch'io respiri, lascia

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Lasciami! Lascia ch'io respiri, lascia
ch'io mi sollevi! Ho il gelo nelle vene.
Ho tremato. Ho nel cor non so che ambascia...
Ahimè, Signore, è il giorno! Il giorno viene!

Ch'io non lo veda! Premi la tua bocca
su' miei cigli, il tuo cuore sul mio cuore!
Tutta l'erba s'insànguina d'amore.
La vita se ne va, quando trabocca.

Trafitta muoio, e non dalla tua spada.
Mi si vuota il mio petto, e senza schianto.
Non è sangue? Ahi, Signore, è la rugiada!
L'alba piange su me tutto il suo pianto.
