Leb' wohl und sehen wir uns wieder

Language: German

Leb' wohl und sehen wir uns wieder,
So schlage du die Augen nieder,
Und gehn will ich an dir vorbei,
Alsob ichs nicht gewesen sei;
Alsob ich nicht es sei gewesen,
Der dir im Aug' einst durfte lesen.
Was würd'ich lesen jetzt darin?
Daß ich dir fremd geworden bin.
Ich wills nicht in dem Auge lesen,
Das einst mein Himmel ist gewesen,
Daß ich daraus verstoßen bin,
Und nie ein Rückweg ist dahin.

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 less than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
