Ditt namn jag hade skrivit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ditt namn jag hade skrivit, 
i hjärtat det bar, 
fast du mig övergivit, 
så får det stå kvar 
ibland röda, röda rosor.

Och tar du ock det hjärta 
tillbaka, du gav, 
jag minnes dig med smärta 
allt till jag läggs i grav 
ibland röda, röda rosor.
