O wie tief, hat er mir in's Aug geseh'n

Language: German (Deutsch)

O wie tief, hat er mir in's Aug geseh'n,
und wie bald, war's um meine Ruh' gescheh'n.
Sprach von Lieb', sprach von Leid,
schlang den Arm so leis um mich,
zitternd hab' ich's gefühlt,
wie das Blut zum Herzen schlich.
Und nun hat er mich gar 
auf den blassen Mund geküsst,
und ich schwieg, doch mir war 
grad' als ob ich sterben müsst!
Und bei Tag und bei Nacht träum' von seinen Küssen ich,
wo ich geh'wo ich steh' immer ruft's: Ich liebe Dich!
