There is no sun the sky is black
the days are sad and dreary
longing gnaws at my heart
for you my dear beloved.

I seek you by day in all the streets
and wander as a shadow at night
I ask the rain drenching me from above
Did you bring me regards from my love?

Wind roars with raging fury
Rain answers cold and mute
Yes I know, yes I know
Someone else has taken your flower.

A shudder shakes my soul
Pain stabs my heart
Only the leaves, the small ones gone yellow
know my ruin and feel my woe.
