I loved you
* * *
I loved you: and my love may still remain,
Deep in my soul where it has not died yet;
But let it no longer cause you pain;
I do not wish to make you feel upset.
I loved you silently and with despair,
Through bouts of jealousy or silent stealth;
I loved you tenderly as one may dare,
God bless you to be loved by someone else.

Я вас любил: любовь еще, 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.
