Grateful — July 2017

You put a smile on my lips
It made me feel great
It made me feel grateful

That I could from what I have
That I could because you have
That we could because we have
I am grateful

I have a new start
Thank you



Hijabbed, and she looked so unassuming.
One wouldn’t at once see any grace that delights
Save for her covering; not les cheveux,
Hidden, in ornamented white material.

His first reaction was to smile, and she saw it.
It was for a mundane reason that he said something.
So they spoke, and became friends.

Hijabbed, and with little on the visage,
She charmed gracefully from within.
Her essence shown through,
From behind an open veil free.

Uncovered was a smart mind and friend’s persona.
