Maé,

Maé,

Tu es arrivée le 30 Novembre dernier

You arrived last November 30th

Par surprise, un beau matin, j’ai appris que tu étais née

By surprise, on a beautiful morning, I learnt that you were born

Ton Papa m’a appelé pour t’annoncer

Your father called me to tell me

Son sourire ne le quittait pas, déjà il t’admirait

His smile couldn’t leave him, he already admired you

Depuis il ne cesse de répéter,

Since then he can’t stop repeating,

« Qu’elle est belle ma Maé »

“She is so beautiful, my Maé”

Et c’est bien vrai !

And it’s true!

Vite je suis montée à Paris pour te rencontrer

Quickly, I went to Paris to meet you

Je t’ai embrassée, portée, parlée, habillée, photographiée

I kissed, carried, spoke, dressed, photographed you

Tu as mangé, rigolé, pleuré, gigoté, ronchonné, gazouillé

You ate, laugh, cried, wriggled, grumbled, babbled

On a joué

We played

On a dansé, dansé

We danced, danced

Et je me suis amourachée

And I fell in love with you

Tes toutes petites mains, tes tous petits poignets, ton tout petit nez,

Your so small hands, your so small wrists, your so small nose,

Et tes grimaces. Comment résister ?

And your funny faces. How can I resist?

Et puis déjà j’ai dû te quitter

And already I had to leave you

Mon cœur s’est serré

My heart was heavy

Je m’en vais loin, Maé

I go far away, Maé

Mais ne t’inquiète pas, même éloignée,

But don’t worry, even far away,

Je te regarderai

I will look at you

Marcher, sauter, danser,

Walking, jumping, dancing,

Virevolter !

Spinning!
