City of Lights

‘City of Lights’ / ‘La Ville Lumière'

I have seen you

in my dreams,

through open windows.

I can almost breathe your smell,

hear the sound of you,

feel the charm of your kiss.

I close my eyes

and fall in love

with your hidden corners,

your glow after nightfall,

the feel of you.

Can you love a place

before you see it?

Paris,

you are already written on my heart.

Je’taime.
