While she covered her face the next time he saw her,

He recognised her instantly


It was never her face he couldn’t stop looking at

It was the radiance around her:

The way she spoke

The way she laughed

The way she looked at him when he spoke


She could cover her whole body, if she wished, and he would still recognise her from afar


It’s the way she carries herself

Knowing that God resides in her


The years may age her skin

The age may soften her look

But that loving look in her eyes never disappeared

And while she refrained from lifting her head up


He saw her smile
