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.
