    A Relatively Short (and Late) Valentine's Poem. (Translate?)

    I'd like this translated into Russian, if you don't mind. I already have a German variant written out I plan to post on the other board.

    I will love you, until the end of time.
    Even though you are so far away from here.
    And even though we cannot be together now,
    I will wait for you.
    Because I love you,
    For who you are.
    I love you, because you love me.
    And until I can hold you in my arms,
    I will keep dreaming.
    And until I can see your smile,
    I will keep hoping.
    And until I can kiss your lips,
    I will keep wishing.
    And until I can be with you forever,
    I will keep trying.
    Until, finally, I can touch you for the first time.

    I've struggled to try and translate it, but I'm still very much a beginner to the Russian language, and this is relatively advanced stuff. Atleast in German.
    Революция!

    I'm not much of a poet, you know. So there won't be rhymes.

    Я буду любить тебя до конца жизни.
    Даже несмотря на то, что ты так далеко отсюда.
    И хотя сейчас мы не можем быть вместе,
    Я буду ждать тебя.
    Потому что я люблю тебя
    За то, какая ты есть.
    Я люблю тебя, потому что ты любишь меня.
    И до тех пор пока не смогу обнять тебя,
    Я буду продолжать мечтать.
    И до тех пор пока не смогу увидеть твою улыбку,
    Я буду продолжать надеяться.
    И до тех пор пока не смогу поцеловать тебя,
    Я буду продолжать желать.
    И до тех пор пока я не смогу быть с тобой навеки,
    Я буду продолжать пытаться.
    До тех пор пока, в конце концов, я смогу прикоснуться к тебе в первый раз.

    Thank you very much! And don't worry about rhyming- mine didn't rhyme in the first place. Though I have heard that the Russian language has a very loose syntax that makes it very easy to keep poems and lyrics with their original poetic rhyming, isn't that so?

    Well, maybe that's so.

    By the way, who the poem is addressed to? If it's a woman, fine. But if it's a man, then you should replace "какая" by "какой".

    It is true, but sometimes the words in Russian may just not rhyme no matter how you arrange them.
