Gedenkst du mein

Language: German

Gedenkst du mein, wenn du mit reinen Blicken
Hinausstrebst in die dunkle Nacht?
Ich denke Dein! und kann mich was erquicken,
So ist's nur, weil ich Dein gedacht!

Gedenkst du mein, wenn dir die Tränen kommen?
Mein Leben ist ein stilles Ach!
Die Freude draus ward mir mit dir genommen,
Und nur der Schmerz ist ewig wach!

Gedenkst du mein? Du hast es mir versprochen,
Und darum ja lebt' ich bisher fort
Getrost; denn hättest du dein Wort gebrochen,
Wär' mehr gebrochen als ein Wort.

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, it is supported financially 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.
