A very personal one (for the Dutchies)
on: April 12, 2018, 13:15:07
Hi guys and gals,

What's up in here?
Just came on in between work to post this one.
I need to take it of my chest.

It is in Dutch however (well, actually in West-Flemish, but I'll 'translate' into Dutch (so the rhyme and rythm from the original will be a bit off...)).
As the Dutchies probably will read in it: it's a rough week.



West-Vlaamse versie

Ti ni
Omdaj volgens de theorie
Nog gin kiendje zit

Kei je gevoeld
Geit in mie geweund
Mo woan vee te letr tid

Jun andjes nog te kort
Vo je goe vaste toudn
Ei kik iets misdoan?
Zat je doar in de koude?

T bluft spoken in minne kop
Ne meulne die ni stopt

Khad nog ni ip papier
Dus papa wist et ni
Mor kwete wel zeker
Ie ging joe geirne zien

Jun neefke en nichtjes
Ston in gedachtn ol grjid
Vo joe ip te vangn
Oj me je velo ljirde rien

Kei me je geklapt
Je kamer ingericht
In gedachten

Kwete da je nog gin oorkes at
Mor ik koste
Ol ni mji wachtn

Eik te stif verlangd, te vele gewild?
Niemand die t ooit kan zegn
De natuur is onvergefeluk
We moen der oes bie nerelegn

Mo t bluft spoken in minne kop
Ne meulne die ni stopt



Vertaling

Tis niet
Omdat je volgens de theorie
Nog geen kindje bent

Ik heb je gevoeld
Je hebt in me gewoond
Maar we hadden veel te weinig tijd

Je handjes nog te kort
Om je goed vast te houden
Heb ik iets misdaan?
Zat je daar in de kou?

Het blijft spoken door mijn hoofd
Een molen die niet stopt

Ik had het nog niet op papier
Dus papa wist het niet
Maar ik weet wel zeker
Hij ging je graag zien

Je neefje en nichtjes
Stonden in gedachten al klaar
Om je op te vangen
Als je met je fiets leerde rijden

Ik heb met je gepraat
Je kamer ingericht
In gedachten

Ik weet dat je nog geen oortjes had
Maar ik kon
Al niet meer wachten

Heb ik te hard verlangd, teveel gewild?
Niemand die het ooit kan zeggen
De natuur is onvergefelijk
We moeten er ons bij neerleggen

Maar het blijft spoken door mijn hoofd
Een molen die niet stopt

Hi @siennalittle , let me say this in Dutch.. (there's always Google Translate)..

Deze tekst raakte me heel diep, sorry dat je dit hebt moeten meemaken.. Ik vind dat je de woorden prachtig gekozen hebt, het grote plaatje komt hard binnen, en juist de details die je beschrijft maken de impact van het contrast 'verlangen naar'/'de enorme teleurstelling' benauwend groot. Als kunstvorm kreeg ik kippenvel hiervan. Maar als mens wens ik de hoofdpersoon heel veel sterkte toe.. Ik hoop dat het niet autobiografisch is?

Best wishes for you as well and great to see you back in the kitchen Sienna!
Cheers,
:mart:

@siennalittle
Iím the one with his heart on his sleeve, but iíve never ever before read a more moving and personal one as this one.
I know enough of Flemish to have started on that one, but (Dutch) to be on the safe side I read the translation too.

I canít say very much about it for being afraid of not being subtle enough, but I really hope that by writing these lyrics, and publishing it, it lifts some weight off your shoulders. All I can do is hope that there are loved ones around you to help you carry this.

Keep the faith, because no matter what everyone says, at the end of the day youíre the one having to cope with it.
I wish you lots and lots of strength.
Kind regards, Gus

Thx guys. I'm gonna be okay. Not quite yet, but I'm getting there.
I do feel like, because of the intense emotions and perhaps also the language choice, these really are my most 'naked' lyrics to date.
But not many forummers will understand any of it ;-)

Posting it on here (and singing it) did help a bit.
Guess I kinda forgot how therapeutic music can be.

@siennalittle so sorry for your loss. Glad to see that you could turn to music. It's a gift at times like this I think..


Take care of yourself as you go through this..

Of course I can't understand the lyrics @siennalittle , but from the responses of those that can, I can imagine your pain and I'm so sorry for your loss ::heart::
Really nice to see you around in the Kitchen again though, even under such sad times for you  :(  I hope we'll hear more of your lovely music asap  ::Suzy::
