Rücknahme

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich sagte nicht: ich liebe dich.
Ich sagte nur: gib mir die Hand
Und dulde mich!

Mir schien, du wärest mir verwandt,
Du wärst so jung und gut, wie ich...
- Ich sagte nicht: ich liebe dich.

Abandon

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Je ne disais pas : « je t'aime ».
Je disais seulement : « donne-moi la main »
Et tolère-moi !

Je croyais que nous serions assortis,
Tu étais si jeune et bonne, comme moi …
– Je ne disais pas : « je t'aime ».
