Te spectem, suprema mihi cum venerit hora, Et teneam moriens deficiente manu.
May I look on thee when my last hour comes; may I hold thy hand, as I sink, in my dying clasp. Bk. 1, no. 1, line 59 Variant translation: May I be looking at you when my last hour has come, and dying may I hold you with my weakening hand.
