Like a Red Balloon

Like a Red Balloon

A young girl

Holding onto an old love

The kind that follows you around

Like a red balloon 

Tied to your finger

With a bit of string

You feel it floating above 

Following close

Bobbing happily along

But always wary 

The knot

Could come undone

Slipping easily 

Out of your grasp

Its ribbon rising

Beyond reach

And all you can do

Is watch it drift away
