We’re Not So Different

You and I, we’re not so different. You stare at me in the eyes, and feel the wonder of the skies. You wander the earth and climb the trees. And I feel you inside there looking at me.

You and I, we aren’t so different. You eat and sleep, and dream of things. You strive and fight, and wait for what life brings. You cuddle close, but sometimes want to be alone. You wander far, but call this home.

You and I, we’re not so different. You’ve got a face that I can’t erase. You walk and talk in your own way. Leave to venture, and return every day. Finding things like string to play.

You and I, we aren’t so different. You feel pain, and love, and a heart that aches. You live and breathe in a body that breaks. You pass the days in many ways, and all that time we both wait, for fate.

You and I, we’re the same.
