Dido's lament

Thy hand, Belinda... darkness shades me;
on thy bosom let me rest;
more I would, but Death invades me:
death is now a welcome guest!
 
When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create
no trouble, no trouble in thy breast;
remember me, remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
Remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
 
Thanks!
