Morte io non temo, Giulietta's aria from I Capuletti ed I Montecchi

Morte io non temo, il  sai,
Sempre la chiesi a te.
Pur non provato mai
Sorge un terrore in me
Che mi sgomenta.
Se del licor possente
Fallisse la virtù
Dubbio crudele!
Se in quell'orror giacente
Non mi destassi più...

Ah! non poss'io partire
Priva del tuo perdono :
Presso alla tomba io sono,
Dammi un amplesso almen.
Pace una volta all'ire,
Pace ad un cor che more...
Dorma ogni tuo furore
Del mio sepolcro in sen.
