My Little Girl (Hindi Translation Of Poem By Rosie Bourget) – Poem by Rajnish Manga

My Little Girl by Rosie Bourget
Hindi Translation by Rajnish Manga
मेरी नन्हीं बच्ची (मूल रचना: रोज़ी बॉरजेट)
हिंदी अनुवाद रजनीश मंगा द्वारा

मैं हैरान हूँ कि तुम कितनी जल्दी बड़ी हो गई हो
एक बातूनी छोटी सी, प्यारी सी बच्ची से
एक खूबसूरत, समझदार, दयालु,
सम्मानित और मेहनती युवती के रूप में.
मुझे अपने भाग्य पर यकीन नहीं होता कि तुम्हें मैंने
अपनी बेटी के रूप में पाया जो मेरी एक मित्र भी है
जो मेरे लिए बहुत मूल्यवान है और जिसे मैं दिल से चाहती हूँ.
मुझे पता है कि अब मैं तुम्हारा हाथ पकड़ कर हर सुबह
तुम्हें तुम्हारी क्लास तक नहीं ले जा सकती,
मगर मैं तुम्हें ज़िंदगी भर अपने कलेजे से लगा कर ज़रूर रखूंगी.

To My Daughter Sabine

By Rosie Bourget

I look at you at this moment

So ready to start a new life

So ready to face a new world

But in my heart, I’m thinking back

To when I first held my little girl,

And I said to myself, gosh,

She is everything I dreamed

I hope she knows how proud I am

To have a daughter

As wonderful as her !

I look at you at this moment

And I’m thinking,

It may be time to let my girl go for good,

But the things I’m keeping for myself,

Are my precious memories !

As the time has come for you

To transition from daughter to wife,

May success find its way to your heart.

Tomorrow may bring you the greatest of joy

But today is the day it all starts!

May you and Sean be each other’s sun and moon

As your destinies unfold.

And should you lose sight of each other

And start to drift apart,

May you circle back by following

The compass of your hearts !


To my Granddaughter Santanna Nia Stallings

What a precious pearl!

We’ve been waiting for you baby girl

With charm and smiles,

To see your beautiful eyes.


Every child is unique and priceless

And you are too, little princess!

Because of your uniqueness,

We all greet you with tenderness.


You are a gift from heaven above

A little angel to cherish and love

Sweet little girl,

Do you know that you are a rare pearl?


With your heart so warm, fastened so tight

And your smile so bright

You bring such delight

That keeps us so tight.


May you grow up with love

Happiness and wisdom

In times to come

Welcome to the world, little love!

Feelings of Abandonment

By Rosie Bourget


The need for human companionship is universal

We feel better when we live in close proximity

Humans are creatures of community

And we literally need each other for companionship.


Sheila says,

Being alone is such an isolated lifestyle one can experience.

She feels abandoned in her despair

She has been like this for years

While her smile hides her tears.


Sheila says

She is lonely

She never could get close to her family

Her wish is to find a compatible friend

Who can understand her acute pain.


Sheila says,

You can have all the money in the world

But if you don’t have anyone to share your life with

If nobody values you

You have nothing.



Sometimes, your emptiness is so deep

you need someone to fill it up

sometimes, your loneliness is so intense

no relatives can cheer you up

sometimes, your sadness makes you feel so worthless

you need someone to just tell you what you want to hear

sometimes, sometimes,

you need more than wealth and power

sometimes, you need love and attention

to make you feel you are living

not just existing !



Meilleurs Vœux

Par Rosie Bourget

Des vœux de bonheur

Pour une année toute en douceur

D’une dame de cœur

Qui pense à toi partout, ailleurs

Que ceux que tu aimes soient à tes côtés

Tout au long de cette année.


Nouvel an

Nouvel élan

Pour la plupart

C’est un nouveau départ

Pour d’autres

Il n’est pas différent des autres

Chaque instant merveilleux

Est un instant précieux

Mes meilleurs vœux

Et mes positives pensées

Pour démarrer l’an 2018 en beauté.

Mes Plus Douces Pensées!

Par Rosie Bourget

 Crise économique

Crise politique

Crise de panique

Que la mouche me pique

Je me fous de toutes critiques

Car Noël, c’est un moment magique

Pour  formuler des vœux poétiques

À l’égard des amis sympathiques

Mâle comme femelle

Sage ou rebelle

Pour que votre fête soit belle

Ignorez les libelles

Et vous aurez un joyeux Noël.

Mes plus douces pensées

Pour les fêtes de fin d’année.

This new beginning

I did not see it coming

I was about to displace

Suddenly, everything falls into place


For me, my savior has a better plan

So, I put my fate in his right hand

For he will take care of the rest

While I am hoping for the best


As I begin my new journey

I want to put the past behind me

To move forward as fast as I can

And enjoy the rest of my life as I plan


Some people won’t miss me

Others say they’re happy for me

Regardless of their theory

To God be the glory!

Arrêtez De Vous Faire De Souci

Par Rosie Bourget


Avez-vous parfois le sentiment que le courant ne passe pas ?

Pensez-vous souvent que l’effort ne vaut pas la peine?

Etes-vous fatigué d’une litanie de déceptions,

de la confiance trahie?


La vie nous lance constamment des défis,

Espoir, courage et persévérance sont vos seuls alliés.

Si vous avez perdu  une bataille,

cela ne dit pas que vous avez perdu la guerre.


Peu importe ce qui se passe,  n’abandonnez jamais.

Faites preuve de courage face à l’adversité.

Gardez l’espoir, reculez pour mieux sauter, et foncez de nouveau.

C’est le courage et l’espoir qui renforcent la victoire.



Dedicated to my daughter Sabine

By Rosie Bourget

You came into my life one day

and since that day

you make me smile everyday

for that reason, you deserve a magical day.


Today is your birthday

celebrate the day

as if it was your last day.


Whether it’s a rainy or a shiny day

just make it a great day

with rolls of candles to light up your day.


With many years to celebrate

you deserve a break

to put icing on your cake.


May you have the perfect day

may everything go your way

Happy birthday!
