Einsam? Nein, das bin ich nicht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Einsam? Nein, das bin ich nicht,
Denn die Geister meiner Lieben,
Die in ferner Heimat blieben,
Sie umschweben mich.

Traurig? Nein, das bin ich nicht;
Denn ich weiss, daß in Gedanken
Meine Teuren mich umranken
Und mir nahe sind.

Glücklich? Nein, das bin ich nicht;
Denn bei still geweinten Tränen
Fühl ich wehmutsvolles Sehnen
Nach der Heimat hin.

Hoffend? Ja, dies ist mein Sinn:
Einst mit den geliebten Meinen
Wiederum mich zu vereinen,
Dies erfüllt mein Herz.
