    But be careful, most of them are not about happy love! This one should be fine though.

    Actually I don't like love poems too much but this one I really love. I think it's very sad and very romantic (and pretty short ).

    А.С. Пушкин

    Я Вас любил. Любовь еще, быть может,
    В душе моей угасла не совсем.
    Но пусть она Вас больше не тревожит –
    Я не хочу печалить Вас ничем.

    Я Вас любил безмолвно, безнадежно,
    То робостью, то ревностью томим…
    Я Вас любил так искренно, так нежно,
    Как дай Вам Бог любимой быть другим.

    Did I tell you I hate poetry!

    What is a song, but poetry with music?

    You don't know a thing about songs! Lyrics is not the main component. I betcha.

    How true! The lyrics to a song must also sound "right' with the note of music that is applied to it. Some words do not sound good at a certain point in the song and must be changed. The music must come first. This is what separates poetry from a song.

    Many times the words to a song do not sound right without the music.

    But the music without the words is a poem of the soul

    Violets are blue.
    Roses are red.
    Take off your clothes
    And get into bed!

    On the morning after:

    Violets are blue.
    Roses are red.
    Put on your clothes
    And cook me омлет!

    We had to memorize this song on our Russian class. I still remember it. It's really romatnic.

    В одной отечественной комедии герой, написав это стихотворение в письме к любимой, закончил так: "Не дай Вам бог любимой быть другим".
