♥The Lover - "She is standing on my eyelids / and her hair is in mine / she has the shape of my hands, / she has the color of my eyes / she is engulfed in my shadow / like a stone against the sky. // She keeps her eyes open / and will not let me sleep. / Her dreams in broad daylight / make the sun evaporate / and make me laugh, cry and laugh, / speak when I have nothing to say." - Paul Eluard
French: Life is a long sleep and love is its dream. 8x10 print (Fleur de lis Motif, Diamond shown)
This quote is from Parisian poet and writer Alfred de Mussett (1810-1857) These original French sayings are meant to remind us each day of the passion in life and what better way to express that than in the language of love.
