Komm einmal noch

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Japanese (日本語)

Komm einmal noch, Geliebter!
Am Lager steht der Tod.
Der läßt zu Schnee erbleichen
meiner Wangen Rot.

Komm einmal noch, Geliebter!
So stirb sich's gut und mild:
ein Liebeswort auf den Lippen,
im Sinne dein liebes Bild.

Come once more!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

O come once more, my darling!
Beside my bed stands death.
My cheeks to snow he changes
As he steals my breath.

O come once more, my darling!
That peaceful death may be:
A loving word softly whispered,
A last tender glance from thee!
