Und jede Nacht derselbe Traum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Traum: du stehest fern und still,
Es schlägt mein Herz beklommen --
O Mutter, Mutter kannst du nicht 
Zu mir herüberkommen?

Und jede Nacht derselbe Traum!
Es schluchzt mein Herz beklommen --
O Mutter, warum willst du nicht 
Zu mir herüberkommen?
