Italian.png Italian text

Alma afflitta, che fai,
chi ti darà più vita,
se colei, per cui vivi,
oggi è partita ?
Ahi, son ben folle e cieco,
con l'alma a ragionar,
che non e meco.

English.png English translation

Afflicted soul, what will you do,
Who will give you life and more,
If she, for whom you live,
Today is gone?
Ah, I am really mad and blind,
To reason with the soul,
Which is no longer mine.

Translation by James Gibb

French.png French translation

Ame affligée, que fais tu,
qui te donnera plus de vie
si celle pour qui tu vivais
est maintenant partie ?
Ah, je suis bien fou et aveugle
de raisonner avec l'âme
qui ne m'appartient plus.
