    to Valentina Serova

    Wait for me, and I’ll come back!
    Wait with all you’ve got!
    Wait, when dreary yellow rains
    Tell you, you should not.
    Wait when snow is falling fast,
    Wait when summer’s hot,
    Wait when yesterdays are past,
    Others are forgot.
    Wait, when from that far-off place,
    Letters don’t arrive.
    Wait, when those with whom you wait
    Doubt if I’m alive.

    Wait for me, and I’ll come back!
    Wait in patience yet
    When they tell you off by heart
    That you should forget.
    Even when my dearest ones
    Say that I am lost,
    Even when my friends give up,
    Sit and count the cost,
    Drink a glass of bitter wine
    To the fallen friend -
    Wait! And do not drink with them!
    Wait until the end!

    Wait for me and I’ll come back,
    Dodging every fate!
    “What a bit of luck!” they’ll say,
    Those that would not  wait.
    They will never understand
    How amidst the strife,
    By your waiting for me, dear,
    You had saved my life.
    Only you and I will know
    How you got me through.
    Simply - you knew how to wait -
    No one else but you.

    1941-Konstantin Simonov

    Remember the fallen-on Veterans day.
