through a veil of magic
a world unfolds
beyond the veil
so much untold
images form
out of the mist
gently kissed
thoughts reborn
forgotten, missed,
step through the veil
spirits blissed
welcomed warmly
dispelling wist

I feel them near
I hope, I pray
they do not fade
no, not today
they'll warm my heart
on winters day
and fill my heart,
hold fear at bay

Oh, are you there?
Please, do you hear?
these images
I hold so clear

thoughts and shadows
on which I glance
fear them fleeing,
taking chance
reach to touch them
feel them dance
before they're gone,
past circumstance
