Littell's Living Age
by Heinrich Heine
translated by Theodore Martin

Volume 135, Issue 1741 : "Die Jahre kommen und gehen"


Years come and go; generations
     Are perishing day by day,
But the love that my heart aches with,
     It never will pass away.

If once, but once, I might see thee,
     And sink on my knees at thy feet,
And, dying there, dying might tell thee,
     "I love thee, I love thee, sweet!"
