Ahi, tu piangi, mia vita!
Tu piangi e piang'anch'io,
Ch'egli è quel che tu vers'il pianto mio.

Mirami in volto pur, se intender fai
Muta doglia e vedrai
per pietà, per amore,
Morir l'anima mia nel tuo dolore.

Ah, you cry, my life!
You cry and I cry too –
For the tears that you cry are my own tears.

Look at my face then, if you now show
A silent pain, and you will see,
Both for pity and love,
My soul dying in your pain.

Translation: Flavio Ferri Benedetti
