Would You Believe Me if I Told You How Beautiful You Are

If I look into your eyes
you might see the truth
the truth about who I am
about where I've been
what I've created
If I look into your eyes
you would see a woman
tired, beaten by life
holding on 
for what, she's not sure
If I look into your eyes
tears would erupt
the tears of pain and grief
of lost opportunities
of failed attempts
If I look into your eyes
and still saw love
the tears would flow
in unending rivers
washing the debris away
If I look into your eyes
and you saw beauty
I would know 
it was your own beauty
reflected back to you
If I look into your eyes
perhaps a seed would be planted
a seed of love and beauty
a seed to grow 
into a beautiful life
If I look into your eyes
in time I may come to know
the beauty you see
the beauty reflected everywhere
filling every cell of my being
If I look into your eyes
