I LOVED YOU - by Alexander Pushkin



I  LOVED  YOU

by  Alexander Pushkin


 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
As may God grant you to be loved again.
