by Léon Escudier (1821 - 1881)

L'abandonée
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Beaux jours que le coeur envie, vous ne pouvez revenir!
Printemps heureux de la vie, vous n'êtes qu'un souvenir!
Mes yeux sont mouillés de larmes, et ma voix soupire en vain.
Il a fui; tout est sans charmes pour mon coeur sans lendemain.
Mon Dieu, prends-moi sous ton aile; ici je n'ai plus d'espoir.
Au ciel son âme étincelle et là j'irai le revoir.
