The years are coming and going

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

deutsch - français


The years are coming and going,
Whole races are born to depart,
But never ceases the passion,
That burns within my heart.

Only once more I wish to see you,
And falling on my knees,
With a dying breath murmur:
« Madam, my love will never cease! »
