by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Cor mio, deh, non languire
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE SPA
Cor mio, deh, non languire, 
Che fai teco languir l'anima mia. 
Odi i caldi sospiri: a te gl'invia
La pietat'e 'l desire. 
S'io ti potessi dar morend'aita,
Morrei per darti vita. 
Ma viv'ohimè, ch'ingiustamente more
Chi vivo tien ne l'altrui pett'il core.
