La Vie En Rose

Des yeux qui font baiser les miens,

Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche,
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras

Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d'amour,

Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ça me fait quelque chose.

Il est entré dans mon coeur

Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C'est lui pour moi. Moi pour lui

Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie.

Et dès que je l'aperçois

Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat.

Des nuits d'amour à ne plus en finir

Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Des enuis des chagrins, des phases
Heureux, heureux à en mourir.

Quand il me prend dans ses bras

Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d'amour,

Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ça me fait quelque chose.

Il est entré dans mon coeur

Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C'est toi pour moi. Moi pour toi

Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie.

Et dès que je l'aperçois

Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat. 

-Edith Piaf 


Forgive me for being so sentimental on a Monday morning–I simply couldn't help myself (and that gorgeous photo put me over the edge)! I hope you're seeing today through rose colored glasses, and that your weekend was filled with loveliness. Mine was all about late-night conversations, abundant breakfasts, gorgeous weather, Indian food, to-do lists for the next year, grosgrain ribbons and monograms–so precisely what I would have hoped for!
