Bury The Dead Thou Lovest

Karl Siebel

Bury the dead thou lovest,
Deep, deep within thy heart;
So shall they live and love thee
Till Life and thou shall part.

So for their risen spirits
Thy breast a heaven shall be;
Like angels, pure and shining,
They go through life with thee.

Bury the life thou livest
Deep in another's heart;
So shalt thou live belovëd
When dead and cold thou art.

Translated from German by Constance Naden.
