Mein Herz ist leer
Mein Herz ist leer,
Ich liebe dich
Ich rufe bitterlich
Im Traume zeig
dich zu mir her!
Ich trag's nicht mehr. --
Ich liebe dich

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02%
of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
My heart is empty
My heart is empty.
I don't love you
I cry out bitterly
Appear to me
in my dreams
and show me
I can bear it no longer.
I love you
