Writing a bio for me is hard because I am myself and I could go on and on about how I think of me but would that be correct in others eyes? So I guess the only word I can really use to describe me is Bree and let my writing do the rest.

Notre Dame is Burning

Notre Dame is burning
What words are such as these?
What person's heart could imagine learning
The columns of ash in the breeze?

Notre Dame is burning, how mourners line the street
Singing hymnals and praying
Tears awash like the shores of Crete
Oh, look! - even the sky is graying

Notre Dame is burning
The steeple for my Savior
The glass and the steeple - oh the hub of life so sterning
Oh, may your will be done, my God and my Savior.

Notre Dame is burning, a beacon, an immovable sight
As harrowed faces freeze and pray as one
As the fire consumes, we do not concede the fight
For His hand will see us through the night

Notre Dame is burning, the center of home
As people gather and in native language sing
A belonging so profound from steeple to dome
Hear the people, hear the bells ring

Notre Dame is burning
A place of treasure stored up in our hearts
Oh how we each long, yearning
To keep the place of so long love and not part

Notre Dame is burning, and we stand together
As Christians, do you see it, it is a test
In every walk of life, our love will never sever
From North to South, from East to West

Notre Dame is burning
Yes, take heart and stand fast
The fire meets water yet flame is returning
Of either triumph or of tragedy, Christians - this will not be our last.

Notre Dame is burning, yet even if it goes
It is not by it that our faith grows
For blazing though it be within our hearts
Faith in God is immovable even if Notre Dame departs.
