Take me to Paris again

I miss

the bold romance

the living past

the smell of burning asphalt

on the Place de la Concorde

as we hurriedly dashed

to adventures unplanned

~

I miss

the breakfasts

at our favorite cafe

laughing at our waiter’s

familiar sneer of disdain

every time we asked for ice

and spoke with ‘rurale’

French accents

~

I miss

Climbing Montmartre

in a misty rain

the surreal feeling

of peace,

of ‘being home’

in Sacré-Cœur

as I lit a candle

to forever Love

and prayed

~

I miss

that afternoon

sitting

under a petulant sky

for a pastel portrait

you commissioned of me,

watching as you ate gelato

grinning crookedly

wishing I was the wind

teasing your unruly

sun-kissed hair

slipping then caressing

your handsome face

~

I miss

those magic nights

holding hands

during midnight strolls

on the Champs-Élysées

where you promised

in my heart

you would always stay

~

Take me to Paris again

where we dreamt

and danced and played

where we loved

night into day

where you swore

we’d always stay,

before you

took your love

away…

~

Just a girl lost in some ways, found in others. Writing my thoughts, ideas, dreams, realities, pieces of me... not all pretty~ definitely real. I'm a mother with faith in God's divine providence that my mistakes and selfishness, my immaturity and past are all part of a journey. That all is never what it seems. That good will always claim victory and there is a plan beyond what human eyes and our fallen natures can see. My three children are my miracles, my life, my blessing and they inspire me to be a better woman and human being. I hope that you and I share and learn from each other in the beauty and reality of life on this ever evolving journey. xo ~ This is a place without masks~ without broken glass paths ~ This is a place to be free To be me~Just a girl lost XxX
