Look into a crystal mirror,
See yourself smiling back at you,
The same joyful smile and twinkling eyes,
Same hair, same figure, same clothes.
Everything that makes you who you are,
This figure in the mirror at your command,
Dancing when you dance,
Laughing when you laugh,
When you cry.
Your image in the crystal mirror,
Is everything you are and also,
Everything you aren't.
Only your reflection mocking what you do,
No feelings for your troubles or joys,
Nothing of your gentle personality.
A mirror shows only the outer you,
The part all the strangers see.
Never trust what your eyes behold,
Within a crystal mirror.
