Why I'm Yours, even though I'm Not Yours
It's just you in everything and in nothing
Before, even, to smile
In any sob and in the slightest sigh
And before being and not being.
I'm just yours, though I'm not yours
And I've only loved but you since I have been
My life begins with you
Too late, but also through everything I face.
You're whole spring, the absolute
Everything I've been looking for all my life,
Supreme from what the well-known breathes,
Shadow of truth from empty thinking.
To have been yours and just yours,
Whatever you touch and feel,
The only addition, your completion
The unique sublime that you fully feel.
There are a lot of people in the world
Which do not arouse emotions, in the soul,
Only one of those people
Awakens in each of us thrill, infinite, concrete.
It's you, you are the shadow that holds me
I keep you in me, priceless gold
You are the light that keeps the living holy
The contempt of eternal anguish.
I'm yours, because that's the only way
There´s bloom and not leafless branches
The hour forgets, hard, sneaking off
The sun only on your sky shines.
It would be good with you even in the evil hour,
Life would really begin with you,
Only with you even perdition would be fine
Hope would know, alive, its sweetness.
Only with you in mind does the smile light up,
The flowers find their full charm
During the day, the meaning of life draws enthusiastically
At night, with aplomb, lives its dream to the fullest.
If we would have been always together
Venom and curse would no longer exist,
We would have forgotten the grudge into the rainbow.
The pain only in nothingness would have been painted.
With you is peace also with the evil
I accept to be twilight only in your being,
I surrender peacefully, in all abyss,
If in your arms, I'm dripping... eternal... my breath.
