In few words:

« tu se’ morta, mia vita, ed io respiro
You are dead, my life, yet I still breathe.

tu se’ da me partita
You are gone from me

per mai più non tornare, ed io rimango ?
never to return and I remain?

no! ché, se i versi alcuna cosa ponno,
No, for if my verses possess any power

n’andrò sicuro a’più profondi abissi,

I will go undaunted to the deepest abysses.

e, intenerito il cor del re de l’ombre,
And having softened the heart of the King of Hades

meco trarrotti a riveder le stelle.
I will bring you back to see the stars again.

o, se ciò negherammi empio destino,
Or, if wicked destiny refuses me this,

rimarrò teco, in compagnia di morte.
I will stay with you in the company of death.

addio terra, addio cielo e sole, addio.
Farewell earth, farewell heaven and sun, farewell. »
