Sie Liebten Sich Beide

Heinrich Heine
1797 – 1856


They loved each other, but neither
Would admit to the other they could:
As enemies, they saw each other,
And almost died of their love.

In the end they parted and only
Saw each other sometimes in dreams:
It was long ago they had died,
But they scarcely knew it, it seems.
