E star lontan da quella,	and be far away from her
E il piu crudel tormento,	is the cruelest torment
Che provar possa un cor.	that a heart can undergo.
Forse verrĂ  il momento;		Perhaps the moment will come;
Ma non lo spero ancor.		but I cannot hope for it yet.
Contenta quest'alma		My soul, content
In mezzo alle pene		amidst its woes,
Sol trova la calma		finds peace only
Pensando al suo bene,		in thinking of my dear one,
Che sempre costante		who remains
Si serba in amor.		ever faithful in love.
