I Loved You…

I loved you, and I probably still do,
and for a while, the feeling may remain,
But let my love no longer trouble you…
I do not wish to cause you any pain
I loved you, and the hopelessness I knew
The jealousy, the shyness-though in vain
Made up a love so tender and so true,

God grant you, to find another man who will love you
as tenderly and truthfully as I loved you.

Original Russian

Я Вас любил (Russian-original) А.С. Пушкин
Я Вас любил: любовь ещё, быть может,
В душе моей угасла не совсем;
Но пусть она Вас больше не тревожит;
Я не хочу печалить вас ничем.
Я Вас любил безмолвно, безнадежно,
То робостью, то ревностью томим;
Я Вас любил так искренно, так нежно,
Как дай Вам Бог любимой быть другим.

Слова – А.С. Пушкин
