Behind the Veil

Behind the veil and hidden inside
is where she wanted to reside
But then an angel came along 
and sensed that something must be wrong
He wiped the tears that she had cried

He found something she had denied 
With gentle touch his love would glide
into her soul -- she felt him strong
behind the veil

He made alive what once had died 
and gave her back her sense of pride
His friendship’s like a healing song 
She’s found a safe place to belong 
No longer would she want to hide
behind the veil 


March 2013 
15-line Rondeau

    I like to think that someone will always come along to nurture the withdrawn and careworn soul. Abide the teacher but not forebear the lesson no longer needed for its repetition.

    This is why you must be here, because you like others here that have a gift to take that fragility and turn that seed of thought into wonderful poems like this and share with all that love you here. Fav--mail
