Jeden Abend werfe ich
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Jeden Abend werfe ich
eine Zukunft hinter mich,
die sich niemals mehr erhebt -
denn sie hat im Geist gelebt.
Neue Bilder werden, wachsen;
Welten drehn um neue Achsen,
werden, sterben, lieben, schaffen.
Die Vergangenheiten klaffen. --
Tobend, wirbelnd stürzt die Zeit
in die Gruft. -- Das Leben schreit!
