Du denkst an mich so selten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du denkst an mich so selten,
Ich denk an dich so viel,
Getrennt wie beide Welten
Ist unser beider Ziel.

Ich möchte beide Welten
Durchziehn an deiner Hand,
Bald schlummern unter Zelten,
Bald gehn von Land zu Land.

Und willst du mir vergelten
Durch Liebe dies Gedicht,
Dann fließt um beide Welten
Ein rosenfarbnes Licht.

Gentle Reminder
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 about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
