*This is another translation of a poem by V. Vysotsky.

My friends light up the candles for me still,
And in the smoke, your image is outlined,
And I donít want to know that time can heal,
That everything will pass away with time.

No longer will I ever lose my verve,
For any burden on my soul and any pain,
Unknowingly, she took along with her--
At first, into the port, then on the plane.

Inside my soul there are deserted lands.
What are you seeking in this fruitless blur?!
There are just fragments of old songs and webs,
And all the rest she took along with her.

Inside my soul -- are goals without means.
Go dig inside,-- youíll find there, by chance,
Two simple phrases and unfinished scenes,
And all the rest is now somewhere in France.

My friends light up the candles for me still,
And in the smoke, your image is outlined,
But I donít want to know that time will heal,
That everything will pass away with time.

You are indeed the Master!

 The tragedy of it is that nobody sees the look of desperation on my face. Thousands and thousands of us, and we're passing one another without a look of recognition.

Thank you everybody!
Hoot it's not the market that I'm worried about, as long as people are reading I'm happy!
