thränenkind – today, the sea (anja’s song) lyrics
you are not wrong, who deem, that my days have been a dream;
yet if hope has flown away in a night, or in a day
in a vision, or in none, is it therefore the less gone?
all i ever had just fades away, the only memory left, is of our special day
i stand amid the roar
of a surf-tormented sh0r-
and i hold within my hand
grains of the golden sand
how few! yet how they creep
through my fingers to the deep
while i weep…while i weep!
my dear! can i not grasp
them with a tighter clasp?
my dear! can i not save
one from the pitiless waves?
but the only one i really need to save
while struggling with the ruthless waves
from drowning in these endless sh0r-s
is this one important grain of yours
