Just som jeg favned dit liv

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Just som jeg favned dit liv,
just som jeg hviskede: bliv!
Veg mig dit blik.
Just som jeg nåed din mund,
just i tillståelsens stund
fra mig du gik.

Aldrig var øjet så fuldt,
aldrig dit væsen så huldt!
Som da du gik.
Aldrig et håndtryk så fast,
som det i vemod og hast
til afsked jeg fik.

Hvorfor fly elskovens luft,
ordet i blomst og i duft
give du mig.
Husk, at al skønhed på jord
bor i de evige ord:
"Jeg elsker dig."
