Red

This isn't really a poem, but a song lyric I just wrote. While I don't usually see much point in posting lyrics to songs I haven't recorded, I liked this one enough to share it. It's about someone (obviously), but I wonder if people will know who (although there's at least one rather obvious hint)?

you grew up so beautiful
but how could you not
with the friends you had with you
and the strength in your soul

I loved you, you know
my red-haired wonder
your eyes, your shy smile
and the strength in your soul

every moment that you had
even broken, even bad
I watched with eyes wide
I lived by your side
never able to touch
though I loved you so much
your spell I could feel
though you were never quite real

I can't imagine the pain
when she was taken from you
but I've seen broken hearts
unleash Hell on this Earth

and you felt our pain
every heartache and sigh
tried to make it end
unleash Hell on this Earth

every moment that you had
even broken, even bad
I watched with eyes wide
I lived by your side
never able to touch
though I loved you so much
bewitched by your spell
standing at the gates of Hell

I stood with you, on the brink
calling demons to end all the pain
all the power in the world was yours
but your world was no longer the same
forgot there's beauty in frailty
a lifetime in one single tear
those tears for a crayon, that shoulder to cry on
know your friends help you live through the fear

and every moment that you had
even broken, even bad
I watched with eyes wide
I lived by your side
never able to touch
though I loved you so much
but your spell remains
I know I'll feel it again

your spell remains
I know I'll feel it again
