Den enda stunden

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Allena var jag,
han kom allena;
förbi min bana
hans bana ledde.
Han dröjde icke,
men tänkte dröja,
han talte icke,
men ögat talte.
Du obekante,
du välbekante!
En dag försvinner,
ett år förflyter,
det ena minnet
det andra jagar;
den korta stunden
blev hos mig evigt,
den bittra stunden,
den ljuva stunden.
