Einziger Trost

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am Tage denk' ich still an dich,
Und träume Nachts von dir,
Und keine Seele raubt den Traum
Und die Gedanken mir!

Sie ruhen ja so innig fest
Verwebt in meiner Brust!
Die keinen Hauch verlieren will
Von all der Qual und Lust!

Und bist du noch so ewig weit
Und noch so fern von mir
In meinem Traum bei Tag und Nacht
Bin ich ja doch bei dir!

Sole consolation

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

During the day I think quietly of you,
And at night I dream of you,
And no one robs me of the dream
And the thoughts.

They lie so deeply and tightly
Woven into each other in my breast --
that does not want to lose a breath
Of all the agony and joy!

And even if you are so eternally distant
And still so far away from me,
In my dreams by day or by night
I am nevertheless with you!
