In meiner Erinnrung erblühen

Language: German

In meiner Erinnrung erblühen
Die Bilder, die längst verwittert -
Was ist in deiner Stimme,
Das mich so tief erschüttert?

Sag nicht, daß du mich liebst!
Ich weiß, das Schönste auf Erden,
Der Frühling und die Liebe,
Es muß zuschanden werden.

Sag nicht, daß du mich liebst!
Und küsse nur und schweige,
Und lächle, wenn ich dir morgen
Die welken Rosen zeige.

Notes about green, red, and white dots

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 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.

Dans mon souvenir fleurissent

Language: French

Dans mon souvenir fleurissent
Des images depuis longtemps fanées --
Qu'y a-t-il dans ta voix
Qui me bouleverse tant ?

Ne dis pas que tu m'aimes !
Je sais que les plus belles choses sur terre,
Le printemps et l'amour,
Seront un jour déçues.

Ne dis pas que tu m'aimes !
Mais embrasse-moi et tais-toi,
Et souris si demain
Je te montre des roses fanées.
