Forever winding, always surrounding
Is my little red ribbon
In me, around me joined with me
Always is my little red satin shadow.
Never knew the pain would hurt so much
Never knew how long it would flow
My pain reflects in all who see
My red ribbon fluttering by.
I’m cutting my red ribbon of pain
Making it all end
The time of healing has begun
But how long will it last?
My hope is fading
Though never truly lost
Time standing like a statue
Never moving on from the agony
Lasting forever and a day.
I’m cutting my ribbon of time
Stained with the agony of the past
Praying that time will pass
But how long will it take?
Red ribbon, red ribbon, my bloody red ribbon
Forever laced with pain
Soon the edges will fray away
And then my red ribbon will end.
