The Face of Love

May 13, 2007

“It was when I was happiest that I longed most…The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing…to find the place where all the beauty came from.”
-C. S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

I’ve seen the face before.

You were a mother months
before our baby was born.
I watched and loved your face of love
For a child you could only feel.

Two years on,
and she can make you make the face
with a kiss, a crayon, a song.

Two years on,
And your face of love beams just as bright
For a child you can only feel.
