Und gestern hat er mir Rosen gebracht,
And yesterday he brought me roses


Oh, yesterday he brought me roses,
The whole night was filled with their scent;
To encourage him who’s thinking of me,
I made him a gift of a whole night’s dream.
And today I go round smiling, wordless
And carry his roses around with me
And wait and listen, and if the door goes,
Then my heart quakes, oh, if only he’d come!
Oh, if only he’d come to me!
And I kiss the roses he brought me
And go search out the dream I had last night.....
