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
