Es treibt dich fort von Ort zu Ort

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es treibt dich fort von Ort zu Ort,
Du weißt nicht mal warum;
Im Winde klingt ein sanftes Wort,
Schaust dich verwundert um.

Die Liebe, die dahinten blieb,
Sie ruft dich sanft zurück:
O komm zurück, ich hab dich lieb,
Du bist mein einz'ges Glück!

Doch weiter, weiter, sonder Rast,
Du darfst nicht stillestehn;
Was du so sehr geliebet hast,
Sollst du nicht wiedersehn.
