Неспящих солнце, грустная звезда

Language: Russian (Русский) after the English

Неспящих солнце, грустная звезда,
как слезно луч мерцает твой всегда,
как темнота при нём ещё темней,
как он похож на радость прежних дней! 
Так светит прошлое нам в жизненной ночи,
но уж не греют нас бессильные лучи,
звезда минувшего, ты в горе мне видна,
видна, но далека, светла, но холодна.

Sun of the sleepless, sorrowful star

Language: English after the Russian (Русский)

Sun of the sleepless, sorrowful star, 
How tearfully your ray always flickers, 
How darkness is gloomier around its light, 
How it resembles the ghost of the days long gone!
That way the past radiates for us in the night of life,
But its powerless rays can't warm us any more, 
Star of the past, I can see you in my bitter hour,   
Visible, but far away, glowing, but cold.
