Bei Nacht und Nebel fahr' ich fort

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei Nacht und Nebel fahr' ich fort,
Frag' nicht, wohin es geht?
Denn ach, was Liebes ließ ich dort,
Das noch am Fenster steht.
Vom lieben Mund das Abschiedswort
Ich hör' es früh und spät.
Das treue Aug' bleibt immerfort
Der Stern, der mit mir geht.
