Canzone di rimorso -Song of Remorse-

The symphony that was my heart             
has dimmed to a cello serenade,             
a slow and mournful melody,                  
a silhouette of love casting its long shadow over me.  

I am a singer without a voice, a poet without a muse.  
A heart without music hardly beats at all and without you, 
mine beats less and less every day. Send me a song so that I may once again sing.  
Lend me an ear so that my love song may be heard.  
O love, love that I have known, is it a sin to ask what I ask of you?
You have sat beneath the fall of tears, 
until nothing was left but a pillar of salt.  
Therefore count my love unworthy, 
my knees tremble with the burden of carrying my heavy heart. 
I can scarcely compete with the warbler who brings song to thee, 
and yet, because I love you,

I conceal the grace to live…

still in love… and yet,
in vain.  

~ Jim Jordan
