La sonnambula “Ah, non credea mirarti... Ah! non giunge”

Ah, I didn’t believe I’d see you 

dead so quickly, oh flowers! 

You have faded away just like love, 

which only lasted a day. 

Maybe my tears could 

Bring you new life, 

but my tears cannot revive love. 

 

Ah, human thought can’t manage 

(To grasp) the depth of my happiness: 

I can barely believe my own senses; 

you do trust me, oh my treasure! 

Ah, embrace me and, always together, 

always united in a single hope, 

from this world in which we live 

we shall form a heaven of love.
