Paris Charm

There comes a time to live your dreams.
Take chances, heart open, embracing new lives.

Surround yourself with light and love.
Unknowing where you are,
what you'll see or become.

Warm embrace of  friendship,
growing stronger with each day passing.

Standing before beauty, one I thought I'd never see or touch.

Mind feeling heavy, words unspoken upon my lips.
Heart growing fonder, passing, like a gentle kiss.

Embark on this journey, never letting it fade.
Lasting and loving memories will always remain.

I stand before you, light filling my eyes,
allowing tender thoughts to whisk me back in time.

  10. "There comes a time to live your dreams.
    Take chances, heart open, embracing new lives."

    It's a wonderful thing when places and things you've only dreamed of are finally realized. I think it all comes back to the first two lines. Trust your heart, embrace life!
