There is a friend I love,
I'd like to tell you of:
My friend is like a sister
Oh how I long to see her...
Her ginger hair is fire
It has so many admirers
She is a fairy in human form
who is in a midst of a heavy storm
A storm that's wild and heavy
To be in it - she must be ready
Ready to fall without protection
And to face her own reflection
She may not like what she will find
No one would - in their right mind
I wonder - is she strong enough to deal?
And her broken heart to seal?
Some people drown in storms
Some float to shore and then transform
Some fairies learn to fly
And some - forever try and try
I do not know where my friend's future lies
Oh how I hope that she would rise
To be the goddess she was born to be
To stand tall and rooted - like a tree
And to my friend - I wish her well
Because she has one heck of a story to tell
And I myself - will be waiting at shore
To hug my friend - a friend I simply adore.
