Beheind the Veil by Mary Bone


Behind the Veil

Behind the veil
tears fell-undaunted.
Shielded from view,
sadness prevailed.
Behind the veil,
a widow mourned,
she was forlorn.
Her heart was heavy
tears broke the levee.
There was light filtering
through the veil.
The light
held promise
beyond belief,
filtering through
the sadness and grief,
consoling her broken heart.
