Behind the veil


I see you
Yet do not see
I hear
Yet do not hear
I reach to embrace
And hold a shadow

For you have gone
Breath stopped
Startled by the ethereal beauty
Of radiant light
That casts no shadow
Behind the veil

I have been deafened
By silence
The silence of the other place
Some slipped through
When you went
Behind the veil

Now you cast
No shadow
And I, behind my veil
Reach once more
To embrace the silence

Of your memory
