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.

  • Invictus Zhai (10/29/2012 9:38:00 PM)

    I loved you once,
    perhaps that love has yet,
    to die down thoroughly within my soul;
    but let it not dismay you any longer,
    I have no wish to cause you any sorrow.

    I loved you wordlessly,
    without a hope,
    by shyness tortured,
    or by jealousy,
    I loved you tenderness and candor,
    and pray God grants you to be loved that way again.

    this is another verson i have seen

    ...I do not wish to cause you any pain....

    The highest expression of loving other which contradicts the other doctrine regarding love...Painful pleasure. Nice manifesto.......................Pranab k c

    This poem is short but speaks of a love is real.

  • Kevin Straw (10/29/2012 1:23:00 PM)

    A love which is not reciprocated can be called true as in I love you truly. But love is only really true when it has been tested in a loving relationship. How many of us have said I love you and then found we did not when the relationship developed? The charm of this poem is in the conditional terms the poet uses when one suspects that the surface indifference he is still in love.

    Love is a blind word..no color...sometimes hinder sometimes builder

    so short and so wonderful.

    and it's sounds still more beautiful in russian, of course...
