I Can

I can see so many things The outfit that you have on The clothes on your bed The pink headband on your head I can see the smile on your face But also the pain in your grace Pain from not knowing your true beauty You look at me everyday I show you your beauty but you don't acknowledge it, you look away I cannot tell you that your beautiful because I have no voice So, I have no choice but to stay silent A mirror can only show you the truth but never speak it out loud You should be proud I can only hope that one day That you find a way To speak love, joy and victory into your life No more strife Even a mirror can want you to be free Once you free yourself from your pain Can you do me a favor? Can you free me from this frame? Then we both can be free
