Reflection of you
by Tonese Rene Reed

I am a reflection of you
It?s funny how things turn out 
I can remember when I was a little girl 
I would always say that I never wanted to look like you 
Now look, I am a reflection of you 

I am a reflection of you 
It?s funny how things turn out 
I used to think that you were the worst mother in the world 
But, after trying to find my own way, 
I realize how great you really are and how blessed I am. 

I am a reflection of you 
It?s funny how things turn out 
Is there anything you cannot do? 
Maybe I?m not a reflection of you. 

It seems as though you?re strong, 
as if you never break down 
Feeling unappreciated, but, yet, still smiling 
How do you do it? 
I couldn?t do it. 
Maybe I?m not a reflection of you. 

So, I look into the mirror and I look really hard 
And then I understand. 
From experiences you learn. 
From learning you appreciate. 
From appreciating you love. 
And from loving, you understand. 

Am I a reflection of you? 
All that I am is because of you 
And all that I?m going to be 
Will be because of your love and understanding. 

So, the answer is, "Yes,"
I am a reflection of you 
It?s funny how things turn out 
Because all that I want to be 
Is everything you already are.
