Før drømte jeg fast hver eneste Nat

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Før drømte jeg fast hver eneste Nat,
Jeg havde dit Hjerte vundet.
Ak, hvor var Dagen da mørk og mat,
Naar Muldet igen var svundet.

Nu plager en Drøm mig saa tung og svær,
Den at jeg dit Hjerte har mistet;
O hvor er Dagen da lys og klar,
Naar Mørket sig bort har listet.
