Paris Postcard

The Eiffel tower in faded ink
an old reminder tucked away
Your past’s abandoned chink

How you once held a drink,
smiling in that Paris cafe
The Eiffel tower in faded ink

Dolled up, dressed in mink
Arm in arm, that rhythm sway
Your past’s abandoned chink

Hearts as one, forever in sync,
sweetheart darlings of the day
The Eiffel tower in faded ink

Oh so happy, a nod and a wink
And yet, you couldn’t stay…
Your past’s abandoned chink

Carefree days, gone in a blink
eyes turned from skies of grey
The Eiffel tower in faded ink
Your past’s abandoned chink
