The sparrow ate the rose

Tonight I watched La vie en Rose, the story of Edith Piaf. I find it inspiring and tragic and beautiful.

The sparrow ate the rose

The world agape
Heard your song.
Mellow fortuitous notes
Struck the chord
And shattered everything.

As it rebuilt,
In the aftermath of
Your expression.
We wept for only once
Would we awe
At the brilliance of tongue.

A tale of a life
Served in entertaining,
Ravishing souls.

You rest now in body,
I visited,
Took my picture and said my prayer.
Heroically you dived to depths
We couldn’t.

You made us take the journey
But saved the pain for yourself.

Edith Piaf singing Non Regrette Rien
