I Am Not Alone - Poem by Gabriela Mistral

The night, it is deserted
from the mountains to the sea.
But I, the one who rocks you,
I am not alone!

The sky, it is deserted
for the moon falls to the sea.
But I, the one who holds you,
I am not alone !

The world, it is deserted.
All flesh is sad you see.
But I, the one who hugs you,
I am not alone!

    मैं अकेली नहीं हूँ / गब्रिऐला मिस्त्राल

    सुनसान रात फैली है
    पहाड़ों से समुद्र तक
    पर मैं हूँ
    जो तुम्हें दुलराती है
    अकेली नहीं हूँ मैं

    आकाश भी निर्जन है
    चन्द्रमा से समुद्र तक
    लेकिन मेरे मन में तुम बसे हो
    मैं अकेली नहीं हूँ

    यह दुनिया सुनसान है
    सभी लोग उदास हैं
    पर मैं तुम्हें गले लगाती हूँ
    अकेली नहीं हूँ मैं

    अँग्रेज़ी से अनुवाद: अनिल जनविजय

    - in ITALIAN:

    Non sono sola

    La notte, è abbandonata,
    dalle montagne al mare.
    Ma io, colei che ti culla,
    non sono sola!

    Il cielo, è deserto
    perché la luna precipita nel mare.
    Ma io, quella che ti tiene,
    non sono sola!

    Il mondo, è abbandonato.
    Tutta la carne è triste, lo vedi.
    Ma io, colei che ti abbraccia,
    non sono sola!

    It is indeed an expression of deep love and affection which is in contrast to the dreariness of the world- deserted and forlorn. Great poem. Simple yet adorable, Thanks. (Report)Reply
