Missing you

via Daily Prompt: Translate


Tu me manques. I came across these words in a poem I was reading months ago. It is the French version of I miss you. The difference is it can also translate as you are missing from me. I love that. I think the context of the phrase changes ever so slightly but yet so much.

I miss you – a longing to see you, wanting to spend time with you.

You are missing from me – you are a part of my being, my soul, without you I am not whole.

The author went on to say:

Most days I miss you in English, on my worst days I miss you in French.

I found these words so very powerful.But of course, no matter how the phrase is translated, it is the response received that can mean everything or nothing at all.





About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  3. The phrase, “miss you” does resonate with the heart. And as so aptly said, the response makes a lot of difference. The response can make or even break even the strongest heart…. That’s the power of emotions!

    OMG I love that! One thing about the English language, we often lack words and phrases that other languages have! xo
