The Lost - Chrissy Williams

The Lost - Chrissy Williams

  Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
             mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
               ché la diritta via era smarrita.

At one point, midway on our path in life
When I had journeyed half of our life’s way
Half way along the road we have to go
 I came to in a gloomy wood
In the midway of this our mortal life
Midway upon the journey of our life
Midway along the journey of our life
  I came around and found myself now searching
  Through a dark wood, the right way blurred and lost

  I found me in a gloomy wood, astray
  I found I was in a dark forest
  I found myself within a forest dark
  I found myself within a shadowed forest
  I found myself obscured in a great forest
  Bewildered, and I knew I had lost the way

Halfway through the story of my life
  I woke to find myself in a dark wood
  Gone from the path direct
  For I had wandered off from the straight path
  For I had strayed from the straight path
  For I had lost the path that does not stray
Midway in our life’s journey
  The straightforward pathway had been lost
