Did Rosie O'Donnell just write a love poem to Ivanka Trump?

While Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump show no signs of finding peace amid their years-long feud, the same can't be said for O'Donnell and Trump's daughter, Ivanka.

O'Donnell recently made headlines after she ran into Ivanka at a New York City restaurant and ended up having a friendly conversation with her and her husband. She tweeted about the interaction afterward, as well as her surprise that Ivanka was friendly and gracious — the exact opposite of her father.

"@IvankaTrump in a city of 8 million - we meet face 2 face - i thank u 4 listening - mother 2 mother - on this new years week - my best 2 u," O'Donnell wrote on Twitter.

After the tweet, though, O'Donnell followed up with a poem she wrote about her experience.

Check it out:

"i see a couple / sitting close together / in a small corner booth / directly across from me

i watch them / stunned by her face / and his calming charm / they were definitely a THE"

She continues, "'that is the most beautiful woman i have ever seen' / i say aloud to dana / she turns to look – turns back at me / 'that’s ivanka'

can’t be i said / no it can’t be / it is – / she reassures me"

According to her writing, O'Donnell thought about leaving the restaurant because Ivanka was there. Instead, she chose to introduce herself.

"i walked the 5 steps toward her table / introduced myself / she smiled genuinely / her husband was warm and gracious

"i told her of my children / some truths about myself / my pain and shame / she was absurdly kind

"i just wanted u to know' / i said in a shaky quiet voice / i then made my way down the large wooden stairway / into my waiting car"

At the end of the poem, O'Donnell seems to offer some forgiveness to Ivanka for the harsh words her father has said. She wrote:

"i wrote a book once / about bashert / the concept of / meant to be

it has comforted me / on my darkest days / when my inner voices scream / u deserved it

as her father has

same as my own."

Props to O'Donnell for taking such a strong stance in the face of the hate she's received — constantly — from Donald Trump.
