Subject(s): Farewell; Immortality; Parting

EVEN though vales and mounts may sever,
And each all tears must shed alone,
Although in life we may meet never,
Yet shall we always be as one.
The mind a bridge is aye providing,
On which we two may often meet;
I will not always Fate be chiding,
Because hope lacks fulfilment sweet.

An angel to and fro is flitting,
And will to thee my greeting bear,
Unto thy heart his words admitting,
May they for thy soul rest prepare!
And I, whene'er I feel thy greeting,
Will think myself in Paradise,
From which the world's cold, cruel dealing
Thrust me, and now return denies.

One sky above its dome is raising,
From which one sun doth shed its light;
With doubting hearts we're ever gazing
To one moon's disk, so silver bright.
The soft breeze strokes our cheeks, oft burning
As if a messenger 't would be,
It cools our ardent, hopeless yearning --
But ever walk alone must we.

Though parted, bound by ties enduring,
We always meet each other's eyes,
And each, for other peace securing,
Would die, like leaf whirled 'neath the skies.
Be brave; our souls from this husk freeing,
Which parts us here, to our great woe,
Soon each the other will be seeing
Where immortality we know.
