Love letter

Paris
Notre Dame
You may be burning
And my heart
Saddened that
I hadn't the chance
To experience
Your grandeur
Hopes to find
A blessing
Amongst the ashes
The tears i can't bear to muster
The what ifs
I faintly shudder
I wonder if I love the building
More than the people
For all its splendor
I miss the point
If I can't remember
Why it stood
We shall meet
Ma cherie
Mon Paris

  1. Lovely and I'm so glad they saved it but I'm not sure what was lost or its history. Will have to dive into it.

  3. This was such a loss, and the photos and videos as events unfolded were hard to see. Tragic :(

    I hope T Tuesday brings us all some much-needed comfort.

    Lovely poem.
    Yes, both my husband and I have been there and treasure those moments.

  10. What a poignant and brilliant tribute to Notre Dame. It was sweet of you to create this. I can tell it was from the heart.

  11. What a beautiful and poetic tribute to this wonderful cathedral. A place I have loved and only wish I could have shared with you first hand. Hearts soar there. And they will again and I trust that one day you will be there in the church from the ashes. This poem almost makes me cry.
