by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Che se tu se' 'l cor mio
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Che se tu se' 'l cor mio,
come se' pur mal grado
del cielo e della terra,
qualor piagni e sospiri,
quelle lagrime tue sono il mio sangue,
que' sospiri il mio spirto e quelle pene
e quel dolor, che senti,
son miei, non tuoi, tormenti.
