Bulat Okudzhava

I met Hope again and it was a pleasant meeting
She stayed here, but I′ve been away – what a pity
She wears the same lucky pop′lin dress as ever
And same is her gaze that is looking to ages ahead

You′re a sister to us, we always are your quiet brothers
It′s hard to believe that life is so short

You never have promised to us golden mansions
We draw them ourselves while young and pretentious
We choose for ourselves both our fates and locations
And stop anyone who impedes us at the wrong time or place

You′re a sister to us, we always are your hasty judges
We had our luck, but it went out of sight

If we could combine Love and Hope as one asset
It′s hard to believe what a picture could gather
How many vain sufferings might we escape then
And only sweet torments would show on our faces with time

You′re a sister to us, why so long have we been separated?
Youth was our matchmaker, but Old Age matched us
