Through the Window

I watch you through a window you allowed me to look through
as you practice in the mirror to a song that moves you so.
And the emotions you convey they do the same to me
as I am captivated by this side of you I didn't know.

I see a realness that you hide that the few will get to see
a glimpse of a person with a deepness yet to share
to be loved in equal measure to the love you have to give
an honesty in your expression as your soul's laid bare

I don't know if in that moment you meant to show so much,
innocently unaware perhaps there was so much to view
or maybe it's just my imagination playing tricks on me
as I watch you through the window you allowed me to look through
