Fece da voi partita
questa dolente vita,
ma per opra d'Amore
nel vostro petto rimase il mio core,
e s'alcun dice, come avvien, che viva
essendo di cor priva
dite lor ch'a gli amanti è dato in sorte
vivre e morir di doppia vita e morte.

Separated from you,
this sad life was made;
yet through the work of Love,
my heart remained in your breast,
and if it happens that someone says I live
being of my heart deprived,
tell them that it is given to lovers
to live and die a double life, and death.

Translation by Allen Garvin
