Italian term or phrase: rhyme (See question)
Vogliamo che Irenja torni tra noi
che parli, che veda, che ami, e poi

Che possa tornare da dove è venuta
ma ogni tristezza ormai sia caduta!

Explanation: A man has asked a fairy to return his dead wife to him for one last time as he didn't get to say goodbye to her properly before she died.
The fairy brought her spirit back and then has to return her to the "other world".

These lines must rhyme and I am hopeless at this type of thing so any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.
