Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen
Language: German (Deutsch)

   Schon wieder bin ich [fortgerissen]1
Vom Herzen, das ich innig liebe,
Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen --
O wüßtest du, wie gern ich bliebe!
 
   Der Wagen rollt, es dröhnt die Brücke,
Der Fluß darunter fließt so trübe;
Ich scheide wieder von dem Glücke.
Vom Herzen, das ich innig liebe.
 
   Am Himmel jagen hin die Sterne,
Als flöhen sie vor meinem [Schmerze]2 --
Leb wohl, Geliebte! In der Ferne.
Wo ich auch bin, blüht dir mein Herze.
