The mirror of life

When I hold you, I feel your love.

When I see you, I see your love.

When I hear you, I hear your love.

When I hold you, I also hold myself.

When I see you, I also see myself.

When I hear you, I also hear myself.

When I love you, I also love myself.

We are perfect mirrors, reflecting shadow and light.

I recognise me in you, it's a beautiful sight.

To live in love we have to let our judgements go,

Everything we recognise is also inside of ourselves as you know.

When I judge you, I judge myself.

When I hurt you, I hurt myself.

When I blame you, I blame myself.

The mirror works in both directions.

Realize that they are all reflections.
