Once there was a mirror
That twisted everything it saw
beauty into cruelty and richness into poor.
One day the mirror shattered
and pieces flew throughout the world
and any person touched by one turned icy and cruel.
Miles away in a small town
lived two friends, boy and girl
who one day, sat outside, watching snow fall.
The girl sat up, holding her eye
as they turned icy and blue.
A mirror shard had stuck in there; her heart was turning dark
With a sneer, she left her friend
and went searching though the town
where the queen of Snow found her, and took her to her home.
The Snow queen was lonely
and she wanted a friend
and in the girl she saw a future queen, a heart just like hers.
A year passed, and people forgot
the girl of laughter and life
Except her friend, the poor boy, who never gave up on his love.
And he started to search
the world across for her
never giving up hope that she was alive.
He met a woman who took him in
and a raven who thought he had seen her
so the boy followed every small rumour, hoping one of them might be true
But it was not her, marrying the prince
or her in the robbers hideout
But then he heard of where she was, high in in the snow of Finland.
He ran and ran for days and weeks
until he stood in front of a castle of ice
and there she was, skin blue as her eyes, sat high up on a throne.
He stepped towards her, eyes filling up
for the girl he had loved had changed.
Gone were the smiles and gone was the laughter, gone was the young girl he knew.
But as she saw him, her eyes widened
as she remember her life from before
And slowly tears filled her eyes, washing away the evil inside.
The ice in her heart melted
as she ran into her friends arms
And the warmth of love they held created magic of their own.
The snow around them melted
And flowers started growing
and boy and girl looked at each other and both simply smiled.
And they started the long journey
back towards their home
Knowing that nothing could go wrong- for they were together again.
