I look in the mirror and I see me
I look in the mirror and I see you
something I was and want to be
yet I don't really know what you got me through

You're my self expression
of how I mentally feel
your feelings are like metaphors
of what to me is real

You're actually a cartoon
pictures, on a cel
but I look at you as much more
part of myself as well

and also sometimes separate
to me you can entertain
to hear about your hope, joy, sadness,
laughter, love, and pain

and to you I say thankyou
for the things you've given me
and helping me get re-int'rested
and shaping me to what I will be
