Средь мрачных дней
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE POL
Средь мрачных дней, под гнетом бед,
из мглы туманной прошлых лет,
как отблеск радостных лучей,
мне светит взор твоих очей.

Под обаяньем светлых снов
мне мнится, я с тобою вновь.
При свете дня, в ночной тиши
делюсь восторгами души.

Я вновь с тобой! - моя печаль
умчалась в пасмурную даль...
И страстно вновь хочу я жить -
тобой дышать, тебя любить!

Au milieu des jours sombres
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Au milieu des jours sombres, sous le fardeau de la misère,
Hors de l'obscurité  brumeuse du passé,
Comme un reflet des rayons joyeux,
Dans tes yeux brillent mes yeux.

Sous le charme de rêves lumineux
Je rêve que je suis avec toi.
À la lumière du jour, dans le silence de la nuit,
Je partage les joies du cœur.

Je suis avec toi ! Ma tristesse
Se précipite loin des nuages distants...
Et je veux passionnément vivre,
Respirer pour toi, t'aimer !
