Ja segodnja ne pomnju, chto bylo vchera
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ja segodnja ne pomnju, chto bylo vchera,
Po utram zabyvaju svoi vechera,
V belyj den' zabyvaju ogni,
Po nocham zabyvaju dni.

No vse nochi i dni naplyvajut na nas
Pered smert'ju, v torzhestvennyj chas.
I togda — v dukhote, v tesnote
     Slishkom bol'no mechtat'
        O byloj krasote
           I ne moch':
     Khochesh' vstat' —
           I noch'.
