The Trip She Would Never Forget
Soothing breezes would grace her face, under the Eiffel tower, yet she felt out of place.

Enjoying white wine, that she had came to favor, as she concentrated to savor, it's vintage flavor.

Watching couples pass by, with their accents so french, relishing in their romantic notions, that would constantly escape her clinch.

"Oh, la, la" their happy words made her flinch, but she broke her petrified state, and lowered the wine in her glass another inch.

Her ability to not find smiles in a place filled with style, was beyond understanding, and beyond her denial.

Even though she could not find gold, in a place filled with treasure, what she always could find, was life's simple pleasures, sometimes beyond any measure.

There lay lady mystery, in all her quiet confidence, reminiscing her past decisions, and all her life's accomplishments.

And every so often, a man would walk by, who somehow managed to catch her eye, and she could envision their future, if he had just stopped and said "Hi."

Love is a timeless transformation, that is the same in every langauge, a respected flag to every nation.

This is something she had witnessed first hand, in all her travels, something she would come to understand.

Then sun beams would break through her day dream of thoughts, and the energy is lost and never to be caught.

What the future holds for a woman of such finesse, is a man of success, who will consider himself blessed.

She rose to her feet, enough playing pretend, she had a plane to catch, and a business meeting at 10:00~
Author's Notes:
This was a word bank poem, turned into the story of a successful, traveling business woman. Words courtesy of Linda Jo, thanks for not going easy on me, I hope this meets your expectations. No words were re-used, future was actually listed twice, that was the tough part~

-All underlined words are word bank terms-
