Conservati fedele;
Pensa ch'io resto, e peno,

Ricordati di me.

Ch'io per virtù d'amore,
Parlando col mio core,

Remain to me faithful
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Remain to me faithful,
Think that I stay here
and pine for you,
and some time at least, 
remember me.

So that by virtue of Love
which converses with my heart,
I may likewise focus on you.
