You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Du liebst mich wohl', ich zweifle nicht...

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Du liebst mich wohl', ich zweifle nicht daran, 
 Und lebte nicht, wenn mir ein Zweifel bliebe,
 Doch liebst du mich, du lieber böser Mann,
 Nicht so, wie ich dich liebe.

 Geteilten Herzens, halb, und halb wohl kaum,
 Wann eben Zeit und Ort es also geben,
 Du aber bist mein Wachen und mein Traum,
 Mein ganzes Sein, mein Leben.

 Du kennst nicht deiner süßen Stimme Macht,
 Wenn du dich liebeflüsternd zu mir neigest;
 Ein armes Wort, das schon mich selig macht,
 Du sprichst es nicht, du schweigest.

 Noch winde dich aus meinem Arm nicht fort,
 Laß lesen mich aus deinen lieben Augen,
 Und von dem kargen Lippenpaar das Wort,
 Das ungesproch'ne, saugen.
