“Last Words” by (maybe) Annette von Droste-Hülshoff
Dear ones, when my soul has departed,
Shed no tears for me;
For there is peace, where I go,
There shines for me an eternal dawn!
Where all the world’s sufferings disappeared,
Shall your image from me not depart,
And healing for your wounds,
For your pain will I pray.
When nightly peace flits
His angel wings over the worldly realm,
Think not on my hill,
Because from the stars I call to you!
