Because you're you
BECAUSE YOU'RE YOU
Shadows do surround you..
you see yourself not through my eyes..
but through the ones of those who've hurt you..
with their betrayal, hatred, lies..
You see not your real beauty..
you do not see your soul..
you see not your compassion..
or your heart that makes you whole..
You do not see the golden aura..
that bathes you in everlasting light..
you only see the darkness of your nightmares..
that trap and bind you tight..
You see yourself not through my eyes..
you do not understand that no matter whether light or darkness radiates from you..
the reason that I love you.. IS because you're you...
