Once upon another time,
She looked into his eyes
And she saw the shine.
A glimmer of love and care,
Something that felt very rare.
A piece of life she never was able to share.
Once upon this time,
She looks into her own eyes.
She sees it coming back. Her shine.
A glimmer that was never felt.
Something that has caused her fear to melt.
She finally knew how to play the hand she was dealt.
Learning to love herself this time.
She can only rely on herself to survive this climb.
