Weil ich dich liebe, muß ich fliehend

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weil ich dich liebe, muß ich fliehend
Dein Antlitz meiden - zürne nicht.
Wie paßt dein Antlitz, schön und blühend,
Zu meinem traurigen Gesicht!

Weil ich dich liebe, wird so bläßlich,
So elend mager mein Gesicht -
Du fändest mich am Ende häßlich -
Ich will dich meiden - zürne nicht.

Translation(s): ENG FRE ROM
