Ah, dolente partita!
ah, fin de la mia vita!
da te parto e non moro?
E pur i provo
la pena de la morte
e sento nel partire
un vivace morire,
che da vita al dolore
per far che moia immortalmente il core

English.png English translation

Ah, painful parting!
Ah, end of my life!
From thee I leave and I don't die?
But I feel
The pain of death
And I feel on leaving
A lively dying,
Which gives life to pain
To let my heart immortally die.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

O, smartelijk afscheid!
O, eind van van leven!
U te verlaten en niet sterven?
Toch ervaar ik
de pijn van de dood
en voel ik in het afscheid
een levendig sterven,
dat het leven pijnlijk maakt,
en mijn hart onsterfelijk doodt.
