Morgens steh' ich auf und frage

Language: German (Deutsch)

Morgens steh' ich auf und frage:
Kommt feins Liebchen heut?
Abends sink' ich hin und klage:
Aus blieb sie auch heut.
 
In der Nacht mit meinem Kummer
lieg' ich schlaflos, [wach]1;
träumend, wie im halben Schlummer,
träumend wandle ich bei Tag.

Every morning I awake and ask

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Every morning I awake and ask:
 Will my sweetheart come today?
 Every evening I sink down and lament:
 She stayed away again today.
 
 All night with my grief
 I lie sleepless, waking;
 dreaming, as if half asleep,
 dreaming, I pass the day.
