What do you see when you look at me?

What do you see when you look at me?

In this world of mine as I watch it go by,
All you want to know is who am I?

Am I what everyone sees on the outside?
Or am I really hidden somewhere deep inside?

There has been a big change happen in my life,
It turned all around and I am no more his wife.

It’s been so many years since I have been alone,
But now it is time, as my children are all grown.

So who am I now, for the all the world to see?
And what do you see when you look at me?

Do you see the scared woman, which sits all alone?
As I ponder my life, not really knowing why it has gone.

Can you see when the girl reaching for something in the night?
As my bad dreams have given me such a horrible fright.

Can you hear the loneliness in my voice once in a while?
Or am I able to cover it with a sweet little smile?

Of course you don’t see that, as it is locked away,
Hidden from your view each and everyday.

So who am I now, for the all the world to see?
And what do you really see when you look at me?
