Heine, "Ich hab im Traum geweinet"

A work ("I had a dream in which I cried") by this German poet.  You can read the original here.

I had a dream in which I cried:             
You lay unmoving in a tomb;                
I woke to find my pain subside,             
My cheeks still wet in tearful flume.   

I had a dream in which I cried: 
You left me in cold solitude;             
I woke to drown in my woe's tide,             
My hours lost to bitter brood.

I had a dream in which I cried: 
You were still true and good and mine;
I woke to find no truth denied,
And tears aflow for all of time.
