Leise wie ein Hauch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Leise wie ein Hauch,
Zärtlich wie ein Lied,
Furchtsam wie der Schatten,
Und so treu doch auch --
    Arme kleine Liebe,
    Die ich hart verstieß,
    Die ich oft des Tages
    Zürnend von mir wies,
Stehst du nun zur Nacht,
Stehst vor meiner Thür,
Rufst mit süßer Stimme,
Bis ich aufgemacht?
    Arme kleine Liebe,
    Hast nun doch gesiegt,
    Dass dir meine Seele
    Still zu Füßen liegt.
