The vibrant afternoon shone through the window,

It made her hair look a red/orange,

When really it was a dark brown,

She took tea and reached for the blanket,

Then she smiled a smile I’d not seen before,

It might have been at her husband,

Or it might have been at the wonderous nostalgia,

That was coming from the television set,

Such a tender smile gave me confidence.
