I love you night and day
As a star in the distant sky.
And I mourn for this one thing alone
That to love, our lifetime was so short.
A long road to heaven’s shining meadow
And never could I reach its end.
But a longer road leads to your heart
Which to me seems distant as a star.
High above the arch of heaven bends
And light so clear is falling.
Like a flow’ring tree the world is blooming.
Overwhelmed, my heart both cries and laughs.
