A veil to hide a face
For a shield
A veil for a bride
So tender, falling
Over features smooth
Over eyes, clear with joyous tears.
A veil for a woman
A shy glance behind
Curtains of hair, used to cover
Concealing the windows to her soul.
A veil for a man
The man who's fate is set
Who's face no one dares look upon
Who's eyes have seen their last.
To cover, conceal, for darkness like night
A veil worn
