Io voglio amarti!

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Come l'onda va il lido a bacciar,
Come il sol manda raggi sul mar,
Come un canto d'angel vola in alto nel ciel,
così te ricordo, amor!
Come il tralcio a la torre si tien,
come brina d'un fiore nel sen,
come l'ombra al fulgor e la notte all'albor,
così a te avvinto ho in cor!
Come luna che fredda si sti su le nubi,
o solinga senza, come roccia fatal,
che tentare non val, così tu non hai pietà!
Come l'alla notturna del gel
fa la rosa morir su lo stel,
come acuto pugnal squarcia un petto regal,
così tu m'uccidi, o crudel! Ma non vale
il tuo cieco rigor, te pur vince un acceso dolor!
Finchè in vita sarò, a te sempre dirò: Io t'amo!
Io t'amo, Io voglio amarti ognor!
