- Tell to me,
Having consider your year,
What time was the best ?
-A days were the happiest,
My darling
Do loved me...
- But was not either, tell,
Such day,
When you cried,
The grief not hiding?
- The darling has forgotten about me.
That day is the most black
I name...
- But it was possible do not to love at all!
To live without a love -
And is easier
And is quieter!.
- Likely, it is easier.
Can be...
But in the life
The such day
I do not remember.

Rasul Gamzatov. The Final price.
Moscow: the Contemporary, 1979.

- Скажи мне,
 перебрав свои года,
Какое время самым лучшим было?
- Счастливейшими были дни,
Моя любимая
 меня любила...
- А не было ль, скажи,
 такого дня,
Когда ты плакал,
 горя не скрывая?
- Любимая забыла про меня.
Тот день я самым черным
- Но можно было вовсе не любить!
Жить без любви -
 и проще
 и спокойней!..
- Наверно, это проще.
Может быть...
Но в жизни
Я такого дня
 не помню.
