O mio lucente sole,
se tu potest’udire
de l’aspro tuo partire
le dolente parole
che mi suonan nel core,
il mio grave dolore forsi temprar voresti
e non mi lasciaresti.

Oh, source of all the sunshine in my life,
if you could hear the dolorous words
that resound within my heart
at the bitterness of your departure,
perhaps you would assuage my sorrow
and stay with me.
