Rosie Bourget Poems

Remember the time
We met for the first time
We were in our teens,
Probably nineteen!


Sometimes in life
Sooner or later
We can be sad and bitter
To our surroundings

I wish I had a mother
To enjoy life together
to look out for my best interest
To help me celebrate my success

Cancer is just an obstacle
Like any other terminal illness
No one is exempted from it
It kills men, women, and children



The mountain land
That resists powerful winds

By Rosie Bourget

Most black women know love
That’s why they give love

When earthquakes strike
Mother Nature speaks
It's not what we like
But we must not freak

To my Granddaughter Santanna Nia Stallings

What a precious pearl!

It's amazing how you have grown
From a talkative, pretty little girl
Into a beautiful, intelligent, caring,
Respectful and hardworking young woman.

In our hearts, we are no different in color
Come to me when the sky changes color
We live for each other
I'm glad you are my significant other

When I think of those who are sleeping in the street,
how could my Thanksgiving be sweet!

When I look at my brothers and sisters, who have nothing to eat,

The book of marriage has many chapters.
Even though some of them are difficult,
They can be easy to understand
It depends on how you read them.

Feelings of fear
You grab a beer

You say to Smear

Oppression, castration
Beating, rape and subjugation
Slavery is a horrible memory
An ugly page in our history

Success is the power to suppress
Just thinking of success
Makes me restless!

True beauty comes, of course, of character
Not through how the eyebrows are shaped
So many people that I'm told are beautiful
Due to the way they look, like a fool!

When Nancy is misbehaving
You take her to the parking
And give her a good whipping
To make sure she is listening.

Today is the birthday of my shining star
Yet, another day to show you how special you are
I always thank God for his blessings
And the best of all I don't have to keep you guessing

Writing a poem about my feelings
Is a good way to bring to myself healing
I try to look forward
But my mind goes back

We all want a diamond piece
But very few seek for peace
With retaliation in mind
How will we find

Rosie Bourget Biography

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Rosie Bourget was born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. As a child, she disliked writing. Nevertheless, life took a turn and writing unexpectedly became her oasis after her daughter was involved in a deadly car accident on a major US highway. The possibility of her losing her daughter a month before her high school graduation in 2007 caused her a lot of frustration and pain and she looked upon writing has her source of relief. “A Rose In Full Bloom” is the poet’s second release but is far from being a trial run for her poetry. The great-granddaughter of the French writer, poet and novelist Paul Bourget, Nobel Prize for Literature, member of the French Academy and decorated Grand Officer of the Legion of Honor Academy, seems to carry the legacy of her great-grandfather. Paul Bourget was also the author of " Crime of Love" , " The Devil at Noon" and other bestselling novels, essays and poetry of high intensity. Rosie attended grammar and high school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She graduated cum laude from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in 2009, with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. She received her master’s with honors in the same field from Barry University. Strong character but deeply sentimental, Rosie is a maniac of principles in the art of doing well. Her poems reflect her penchant for the quest of a better world. Her poems are her melancholy, her cries of bitterness, her tears and also her weaknesses. After a brief stint as an outpatient therapist at the Chrysalis Mental Health, Rosie became a writer for The Weekly Politico-Cultural “Haiti Observateur”, a Haitian Newspaper. She produces her own section called “Personal Development, " a kind of commentary that students can use as a reference in preparing their thesis output. She later became a contributing writer for Additionally, she has written articles for Perspective Magazine and other publications as well. With " A Rose In Full Bloom, " Rosie Bourget enters the main gate of immortality. She gives us through her poems and love songs her " little secrets" with a rare delicacy. The themes presented are simple, but yet controversial since Rosie does not mince words when it comes to describing a scene or telling its reality. Rosie has two children, Sabine and Sarah. She uses writing not to impress others, however to express her emotions and feelings. With so many poems dealing with a spicy flavor theme, Rosie Bourget made a dramatic entry into the field of “belles lettres” and claims her place among the nobles. Besides writing, Rosie is fluent in French, English and Haitian Creole, and her future collections in these two languages are in progress. The author of “A Rose In Full Bloom” will indeed prove that the noble French writer Paul Bourget would have shorted the cycle of reincarnation through his great granddaughter, Rosie.

The Best Poem Of Rosie Bourget

The First Time

Remember the time
We met for the first time
We were in our teens,
Probably nineteen!

Our feelings were divine
Said my sister Nadine
Then, a horrid accident happened
Which cut you open!

Left you dying-to-dead
And made me sick in my head
But now after a few years,
It seems like I'm still in tears!

There is not a second that goes by
I don't feel you passing by
That I don't think about you,
Wish to be close to you!

Whispering sweet words
These simple but truthful words,
In your so lovely ears,
Wrapped them within weary tears!

It's hard for me to forget you
or I just don't know how to live without you
Should I pretend that we never met?
So my eyes can stop getting wet?

If darkness could vanish,
I would say it's finished
Because inner and outer
I am still feeling your laugh!
