Erfüllung

Ich weiß dir nichts zu sagen,
es macht mich stumm dies Glück.
Das Wort will mir versagen,
Vor deinem lieben Blick.
Es fällt von deinem Wesen,
ein milder Glanz auf mich;
was einst ein Traum gewesen,
wird Wirklichkeit durch dich;
doch in der lichten Klarheit,
find ich mich selber kaum;
ein Traum ist nun die Wahrheit,
ein Traum von einem Traum!

Fulfilment

I have nothing to tell you,
This happiness renders me speechless,
Words fail me
As I behold your loving gaze,
Which falls from your being
Like a gentle glow on me;
What was once a dream
Becomes reality through you;
Yet in this clear light
I can hardly find myself;
A dream has become truth,
A dream of a dream!
