Fosca fantasizes about Giorgio writing a letter to her.

View Lyrics

GIORGIO (spoken)
Fosca, it will be light soon, I should be going

FOSCA (spoken)
Would you do me a great favor before you leave?
Would you write a letter for me?

GIORGIO (spoken)
Certainly

FOSCA (spoken)
My dearest Fosca…
(Giorgio stops writing and looks at her, annoyed.)
Please
(Giorgio resumes writing.)

GIORGIO (spoken)
“My dearest Fosca”

FOSCA
I wish I could forget you
Erase you from my mind
But ever since I met you
I find, I cannot leave the thought of you behind
That doesn’t mean I love you…

GIORGIO
That doesn’t mean I love you…

FOSCA
I wish that I could love you…

I know that I’ve upset you
I know I’ve been unkind
I wanted you to vanish from sight
But now I see you in a different light
And though I cannot love you
I wish that I could love you

For now I’m seeing love
Like none I’ve ever known
A love as pure as breath, as permanent as death
Implacable as stone
A love that, like a knife, has cut into a life
I wanted left alone
A love I may regret
But one I can’t forget

I don’t know how I let you
So far inside my mind
But there you are and there you will stay
How could I ever wish you away?
I see now I was blind
And should you die tomorrow
Another thing I see:
Your love will live in me

(spoken)
I remain… Your Giorgio
