poeme pour ma maman

MAMAN
Tu es la saveur de mon pain,
Le dimanche de ma semaine ;
Tu es la ligne du destin
Que l’on peut lire dans ma main ;
Tu es ma joie, tu es ma peine,
Tu es ma chanson, ma couleur
Et dans la douceur de mes veines,
Le sang qui fait battre mon cœur.

English translation by community member Alex Kivley

MOM

You're the flavor of my bread,
The Sunday of my week;
You're the line of destiny
That one can read in my hand;
You are my joy, you're my pain,
You're my song, my color
And in the sweetness of my veins,
The blood that makes my heart beat.

That one can read in my hand;
You are my joy, you're my pain,
You're my song, my color
And in the sweetness of my veins,
The blood that makes my heart beat.

Salut Maombi,

Wow, c'est un poème incroyablement bien écrit. Pendant que je le lisais, j'ai senti la même proximité avec ma propre mère, qui j'aime beaucoup. Vous avez d'autres poèmes? Je vous encourage à continuer de les écrire et de les partager avec nous. C'est une façon merveilleuse et puissante pour les gens du monde entier de se connecter.

J'espère que vous allez bien,

Alex Kivley

Hi Maombi,

Wow, that is an incredibly well written poem. While I was reading it I felt the same closeness with my own mom, whom I love very much. Do you have any more poems? I encourage you to keep writing them and sharing them with us. It is a wonderful and powerful way for people around the world to connect.

I hope you are well,

Alex Kivley
