Auf meinen Wimpern liegt's wie Blei

Language: German

Auf meinen Wimpern liegt's wie Blei,
Die müden Glieder schwanken,
Im Knäul verworrner Träumerei
Verenden die Gedanken.

Der Tag war freudlos zugebracht,
Drum vor dem Schlafengehen
Wünsch' ich mir selbst zur guten Nacht,
Im Traume dich zu sehen.

All mein Erinnern werde still,
Mein Hoffen und mein Grämen;
Nur dich und deine Liebe will
Ich mit hinüber nehmen.

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.
