Und bist du auch ferne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Und bist du auch ferne,
So ferne von mir,
Beschwingte Gedanken
Enteilen zu dir. 

Sie huschen durchs Fenster,
Umschweben dich reich
Und küssen dir Lippen
Und Augen zugleich. 

Es flüstert von Liebe
Der lustige Chor  -- 
Und plötzlich dir klinget
Ein Glöcklein im Ohr. 

Da lächelst du, leise
Errötend, in dich:
"Jetzt denkt der Geliebte,
Jetzt denkt er an mich!"
