Italian Love Song

Non Dimenticar means
don't forget you are my darling
Don't forget to be
All you mean to me

Non Dimenticar my love
is like a star, my darling
Shining bright and clear
Just because you're here.

Please do not forget
that our lips have met
And I've held you tight dear

Was it dreams ago
my heart felt this glow?
Or only just tonight dear?

Non Dimenticar although
you travel far, my darling
It's my heart you own
so I'll wait alone
Non Dimenticar

Paolo and Francesca
Sir Frank Dicksee
(1894)

Se ci separ se ci allontan
L'ala del destino
Non ne ho colpa, no,
e mi sentiro sempre a te vicino

Non Dimenticar, although you
travel far, my darling,
It's my heart you own,
so I'll wait alone,
Non Dimenticar.

Non Dimenticar
"Do not forget"
Original Italian lyrics by Michele Galdieri
English lyrics by Shelley Dobbins
(1953)
