Гори, гори, моя звезда (Shine, Shine, My Star) is a a Russian romance, touching, intimate song that I discovered thanks to another dear friend Izabella Tabarovsky.
I hope that my rendition can transport you to that other world that sometimes we are bless to touch.

1.. Shine, shine, my star,
The welcoming star of love!
You are the only one I cherish,
Another one there shall never be.

{…}

3. O blessed star of hope,
The star of the magic days of love!
You will remain eternally unchanged (set)
In my grieving soul.


4. The heavenly power of your rays 
lights up my entire life.
And should I die, over my grave
Shine, shine on, my star!
