Occhi, un tempo mia vita
Language: Italian (Italiano) after the Italian (Italiano)
Occhi, un tempo mia vita;
occhi, di questo cor fido sostegno,
voi mi negate, ahimè, l'usata aita?
Tempo è ben di morire; a che più tardo?
A che torcete il guardo?
Forse per non mirar come v'adoro?
Mirate almen ch'io moro.
