Meine Lebenszeit verstreicht

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Meine Lebenszeit verstreicht,
Stündlich eil' ich hin zum Grabe,
Und wie wenig ist's vielleicht,
Daß ich noch zu leben habe!

Drum, Geliebte, säume nicht,
Spende mir mit holdem Munde,
Ehe mir die Seel' entweicht, 
Eine letzte süße Labe.
