Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Zabyt' tak skoro, Bozhe moj,
Vsjo schast'e zhizni prozhitoj!
Vse nashi vstrechi, razgovory,
Zabyt' tak skoro, zabyt' tak skoro!

Zabyt' volnen'ja pervykh dnej,
Svidan'ja chas v teni vetvej,
Ochej nemye razgovory,
Zabyt' tak skoro, zabyt' tak skoro!

Zabyt', kak polnaja luna
Na nas gljadela iz okna,
Kak kolykhalas' tikho shtora...
Zabyt' tak skoro, zabyt' tak skoro!

Zabyt' ljubov', zabyt' mechty, 
Zabyt' te kljatvy -- pomnish' ty? --
V nochnuju pasmurnuju poru?
Zabyt' tak skoro, tak skoro! Bozhe moj!

Confirmed with Алексей Николаевич Апухтин, Стихотворения, 2018, page 1747.
