Off topic: Lyrics - Would like your opinion - Urgent request
Thread poster: Nadjezda Heymans
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

(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
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.
Thank you for your prompt replies. I now know what the song says... just beautiful.
