Arseny Tarkovsky: I waited for you yesterday since morning

I waited for you yesterday since morning,
They guessed you wouldn't come,
Do you remember the weather?
Like a holiday! I went out without a coat.

 Today came, and they fixed for us
 A somehow specially dismal day,
 It was very late, and it was raining,
 The drops cascading down the chilly branches.

No word of comfort, tears undried…
