*In honor of the horrific terrorist attacks made on this beautiful city November 13, 2015*

She’s a showcase full of beauty

that reaches such great heights

a place where thousands visit

naming her “The City of Lights”

Yet on a Friday, in November

a sadness fills her heart

to see that evil  still exists

and seems to be the start

As the fear grows all around her

in the shadows people hide

backing up into their homes

and holding hands, they cry

Her eyes grow too heavy

to hold the teardrops in

and watch her children suffer

the way that humanity sometimes did

While her spirit turns the lights off

around the world support has grown

for we find in times of terror

we don’t have to stand alone.
