Und wenn du schläfst und träumst von mir
Dann komm ich still gegangen
Und leg' mein weinendes Gesicht
An deine braunen Wangen.

Und nehme scheu dein schlafend Haupt
In meine beiden Hände
Und denk, wir wären beide todt,
Und Alles wär' zu Ende.

Die Ahnung meiner Nähe hebt
Dir wohl die trunk'nen Lider,
Ich aber küsse sie dir zu
Und gehe heimlich wieder.

Und wenn du morgens dann erwachst,
Liegt wohl ein blasser Schimmer
Von Traumglück und verweinter Lust
Noch über deinem Zimmer.

Bonheur rêvé

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Et quand tu dors et rêves de moi,
Je viens silencieusement vers toi.
Et je pose mon visage en larmes
Sur ta joue brune.

Et timidement je prends ta tête endormie
Entre mes mains,
Et j'imagine que nous sommes tous deux morts
Et que tout est à sa fin.

La sensation de ma proximité lève
Tes paupières enivrées.
Mais je les baise pour les garder fermées
Et je vais secrètement à nouveau.

Et quand tu t'éveilles au matin,
Un pâle éclat repose
De ton bonheur rêvé et du plaisir taché de larmes
Encore dans ta chambre.
