Take Me to Paris Again

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


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

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
