Piango, gemo

Language: Italian

Piango, gemo, sospiro e peno,
E la piaga rinchiusa è nel cor.
Solo chiedo per pace del seno,
Che m'uccida più fiero dolor.

I weep, I groan

Language: English

I weep, I groan, I sigh, I suffer,
And the soreness is confined within my heart.
I only ask for the sake of my heart's peace
That an even more fierce pain should kill me.
