Only to dream among the fading flowers,
Only to glide among the tranquil sea;
Ah dearest, dearest, have we not together
One long, bright day of love, so glad and free?

Only to rest through life, in storm and sunshine,
Safe in thy breast, where sorrow dare not fly;
Ah dearest, dearest! Thus in sweetest rapture
With thee to live, with thee at last to die!
