Du weisst es nicht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schon graut der Tag im Osten,
Und durch die Wolken bricht
Ein bleicher Strahl der Sonne:
Ich lebe, du weisst es nicht!

Im Herzen unendliches Sehnen,
Schau ich empor zum Licht,
Es füllt mein Auge mit Thränen:
Ich liebe, du weisst es nicht!

Mir gegenüber im Spiegel
Schau ich ein bleiches Gesicht,
Es trägt des Todtes Siegel:
Ich sterbe, du weisst es nicht!
