Liebesbriefchen  lyrics by Elisabeth Honold

Fern von dir denk’ ich dein, Kindelein,
Einsam bin ich, doch mir blieb treue Lieb’.
Was ich denk’, bist nur, nur du, Herzensruh.
Sehe stets hold und licht dein Gesicht.
Und in mir immer zu tönest du.
Bist’s allein, die die Welt mir erhellt.
Ich bin dein, Liebchen fein, denke mein, denk’ mein!

Love-letter  translation by Helene Lindqvist

From far away , I think of you, my little one
I am lonely, but with a true heart
In my thoughts are you, and you alone, my love’s peace.
I always see your face, lovely and bright.
And you resound in me for ever.
You alone light up my world.
I am yours, beautiful dear, think of me, think of me!
