I am having a baby girl in April and I would like to write something in Portuguese (for a special reason) on the Birth Announcement Card. I do speak a little Portuguese but I was wondering if someone would be so kind to tell me exactly what the following means and if it is suitable (I know this song wasn't meant for a child but I do believe that it expresses pure love). Thanks a lot.

Filha minha tan amada
Quero fazer-te um juramento
Eu prometo, por toda a minha vida
Ser somente tua e amar-te como nunca ninguém jamais amou

Meu tan amada, estrela pura aparecida
Eu te amo e te proclamo
O meu amor
Maior que tudo quanto existe

Filha minha tão amada Mar 22, 2006

Hi Nadjezda,

First of all, let me wish you all the luck and hapiness for your coming child and to your family. I have two girls myself

This is what I propose to you (European Portuguese):

Filha minha tão amada
Quero fazer-te um juramento
Eu prometo, por toda a minha vida,
Ser somente tua e amar-te como nunca ninguém jamais amou

Minha estrela pura aparecida, tão amada
Eu amo-te e declaro-te
O meu amor
Maior que tudo quanto existe


Hope you like it.

All the best,

Cristina

The translation into English Mar 22, 2006

(At least I'm going to do my best; maybe other members can improve my translation afterwards...)

My so beloved child
I want to make you a promise
I promise you, for all of my life,
To be only yours and love you as nobody else as ever loved

My so beloved, pure, welcome star
I love you and I declare to you
My love
Bigger than every existing thing

I hope you like it.

I have a 4-month old boy and it's the most wonderful thing in the world (except when he's crying as he is tight now... It's desperating... you'll see).

Best wishes for you and your little girl.

Ivana

Ivana's absolutely right Mar 22, 2006

Hi again,

I read (and answered in a hurry) and obviously I misinterpreted your message. I thought you wanted a proofreading, as there some errors on it

I like Ivana's translation and I think it's suitable...

All the best,

Cristina
