Jeg fik et Brev fra hende, som Du veed

Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)

Jeg fik et Brev fra hende, som Du veed,
Fra hende, som opfylder helt din Tanke,
Din unge, friske, stærke Kjærlighed!
Dets Duft fik strax mit Hjerte til at banke.
 
Det var en Rosenknop fra Hjertets Grund,
En Uskylds Lillie, hvori Sukket bæved;
Paa hendes Navn jeg trykkede min Mund,
En stille Bøn dybt fra mit Bryst sig hæved.
 
O, det at kunne ganske tabe sig
I Andres Lykke, som den var vor egen,
Er saa livsaligt! Jeg omfavner Dig,
Min egen tunge Sorg en Stund er vegen.
 
O drøm en deilig Drøm, og da Du veed
Hvad jeg har læst i Hjertet paa din Lillie.
Hold fast ved Gud, han selv er Kjærlighed!
Paa Jorden og i Himlen skee hans Villie!
