Nunca fue pena mayor

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

Nunca fue pena mayor
Nin tormento tan estraño,
Que iguale con el dolor
Que resçibo del engaño.
Y este conocimiento
Haze mis días tan tristes,
En pensar el pensamiento
Que por amores me distes,
Me haze aver por mejor
La muerte, y por menor daño,
Que el tormento y el dolor
Que resçibo del engaño.
