Secrets

Her smile carries the spirit of many souls
Her wisps of grey, the wisdom of ages passed
Her stride is careful, but deliberate
There is no ground her feet have not traversed
When she laughs, the air vibrates and I feel my heart buzz
She knows things
More answers than questions have saturated her life
I avoid looking her in the eye
Because I fear what she might see

-E.E.
