by Olindo Guerrini (1845 - 1916), as Lorenzo Stecchetti

Donna, vorrei morir, ma confortato
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Donna, vorrei morir, ma confortato
Dall'onesto tuo amor;
Sentirmi almeno una sol volta amato
Senza averne rossor.
Vorrei poterti dar quel po' che resta
Della mia gioventù;
Sovra l'omero tuo piegar la testa
E non destarmi più.
