Who is this person I see staring before me?
Who is this person so fragile and weak?
I reach out my hand to draw her in close
But I’m stopped by a wall. A force.
Who is this person that I cannot reach?
She’s just on the other side of me.
I call out softly, but it seems she cannot hear
I know she knows I am there.
Her eyes are looking at me. Or perhaps they are looking through
Into another world or dimension she knows to be true.
Who is this person? I wish I could help
Raise up to the clouds where she obviously belongs.
Who is this person? I see so much life in her eyes
But she’s so scared to show it. Instead tries to hide.
I try to reach out to her again. She reaches for me
But when our hands collide. It’s smooth
A surface that is unknown to us. A window to the soul
And it is at that moment it sinks in
I know this girl and I know what she knows.
We’re two beings sharing a soul.
