Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

M'è stato detto che voli partire
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
M'è stato detto che voli partire:
Specchio degli occhi miei do' vuoi andare?
E se tu parti mandamelo a dire.
Di lacrime ti voglio accompagnare.
Di lacrime ti bagnerò la via,
Ricordati di me, speranza mia:
Di lacrime ti bagnerò lo loco,
Ricordati di me, pensaci un poco.

Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Mir ward gesagt, du reisest in die Ferne.
Ach, wohin gehst du, mein geliebtes Leben?
Den Tag, an dem du scheidest, wüßt' ich gerne;
Mit Thränen will ich das Geleit dir geben.
Mit Thränen will ich deinen Weg befeuchten --
Gedenk' an mich, und Hoffnung wird mir leuchten!
Mit Thränen bin ich bei dir allerwärts -- 
Gedenk' an mich, vergiß es nicht, mein Herz!
