We’ll Always Have Paris

In the new bloom of passion
and the early flush of spring
we first walked the boulevards
of the city of lovers
entwining ourselves
in darkening alleyways
indulging in delights
behind closed doors.

In long, lazy, late summer’s days
we roamed gardens and parks
and wandered through galleries
spent evenings in Montmartre
listening to a solitary pianist
playing our tune.

In the midst of winter now
we travel no more
but like Bergman and Bogart
we’ll always have Paris.

  1. I was watching a rerun of the The Librarian and at the end of it the parting words with a character who was stuck in some alternate dimension was we’ll always have Paris 🥰 and they had never been to Paris so it was touching this nostalgia of a place they had never been, and a movie I’ve never seen 🤣🥰

    Well I’ve never been there either and this took me on a walk down streets I had never been. 🥰🥰

    And Casablanca!!!!!!!!!!!
