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
As may God grant you to be loved again.
~ Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin
Translated by Genia Gurarie
