Deinem Blick mich zu bequemen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Deinem Blick mich zu bequemen,
Deinem Munde, deiner Brust,
Deine Stimme zu vernehmen
War die letzt' und erste Lust.

Gestern, ach, war sie die letzte,
Dann verlosch mir Leucht und Feuer,
Jeder Scherz der mich ergetzte,
Wird nun schuldenschwer und teuer.

Eh' es Allah nicht gefällt,
Uns [aufs neue]1 zu vereinen,
Gibt mir Sonne, Mond und Welt
Nur Gelegenheit zum Weinen.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
