Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen
Vom Herzen, das ich innig liebe,
Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen,
O wüsstest du, wie gern ich bliebe!

Der Wagen rollt, es dröhnt die Brücke,
Der Fluss darunter fliesst so trübe,
Ich scheide wieder von dem Glücke,
Vom Herzen, das ich innig liebe!

Am Himmel jagen hin die Sterne,
Als flöhen sie vor meinem Schmerz!
Leb' wohl, Geliebte! In der Ferne,
Wo ich auch bin, blüht dir mein Herz!

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.
