Ant #218. I loved you...

A. S. 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.

This poem is written by the greatest russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin.


  1. Absolutely beautiful. What a touching poem.

    1. Yes, it's kinda small and basic, but... well, when I say basic, I mean that all the children learn it at schools... but I love it so much. My fav of him!
