Red Ribbon

Red Ribbon

There's this red ribbon I have,

around my wrist it is tied.

You tied it there before you left.

Before you walked away and lied.

 

From this spot I can see it,

beside the dead bare tree.

Just one small gravestone,

everyone fails to see.

 

I feel this ribbon tighten,

as someone says your name.

My wrist feels heavier than stone,

and burns just like a flame.

 

Red slowly trickles onto my hand,

though it isn't the ribbon this time.

I will be with you once more,

as I hear midnight's last chime.

 

Today if someone looks,

beneath that tree, it's true,

they'll see a sight of wonder

they'll see me and you...♥

"I feel this ribbon tighten, as someone says your name. My wrist feels heavier than stone, and burns just like a flame"—the feeling expressed in this phrase is genuine and presented beautifully.
