Yes, these are the very eyes

Text by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)
Translated into English by Joseph Massaad

Yes, these are the very eyes,
That brightened when I met her,
And these are the very lips,
That made my life taste sweeter!

Yes, it is the very voice,
That moved me, with its sweet tone,
But, I'm no more the same one,
Strangely altered, I came home!

The beauteous arms around me,
In an embrace, ever so close,
I now lie upon her bosom,
Dull of feelings and morose.
