Paris de nuit

Trois allumettes

Trois allumettes

Trois allumettes une à une allumées dans la nuit
La première pour voir ton visage tout entier
La seconde pour voir tes yeux
La dernière pour voir ta bouche
Et l’obscurité tout entière pour me rappeler tout cela
En te serrant dans mes bras.

Paris de Nuit by Jacques Prévert. Read an English translation here.
