Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Abschied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!
Ziehe hin in fernes Land,
Nimm der Freundschaft trautes Band,
Und bewahr's in treuer Hand!
Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!

Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!
Hör in diesem Trauersang
Meines Herzens innere Drang,
Tönt er doch so dumpf und bang.
Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!
 
Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!
Scheiden heisst das bitt're Wort,
Weh, es ruft Dich von uns fort
Hin an den Bestimmungsort.
Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!

Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!
Wenn dies Lied dein Herz ergreift,
Freundes Schatten näher schweift,
Meiner Seele Saiten streift.
Lebe wohl, du lieber Freund!

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 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.

Congedo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Addio, caro amico mio!
Parti verso terre lontane,
Conserva questo nostro caro legame,
e custodiscilo nelle tue mani fedeli!
Addio, caro amico mio!

Addio, caro amico mio!
Senti in questo mio canto dolente,
quanto affetto ti porto nel cuore,
e come risuona cupo ed inquieto.
Addio, caro amico mio!

Addio, caro amico mio!
"Separazione" è una parola amara,
ti allontana, ahimè, da noi
per chiamarti dove devi andare.
Addio, caro amico mio!

Addio, caro amico mio!
Se questo canto toccherà il tuo cuore,
L'ombra dell'amico volteggerà al tuo fianco,
e toccherà le corde della mia anima.
Addio, caro amico mio!
