My Balloon in the Wind

As I stood along the path,

As I stood along the path, I saw the little girl.

As I stood along the path, I saw the little girl. She had on a floral dress,

As I stood along the path, I saw the little girl. She had on a floral dress, And her hair had flowing curls.

She stood still, all alone,

She stood still, all alone, With a ribbon in her hand.

She stood still, all alone, With a ribbon in her hand. And above her was a balloon,

She stood still, all alone, With a ribbon in her hand. And above her was a balloon, tied to it, with a band.

She had fallen away from the crowd,

She had fallen away from the crowd, Just to stand and breathe.

She had fallen away from the crowd, Just to stand and breathe. I watched her as she closed her eyes,

She had fallen away from the crowd, Just to stand and breathe. I watched her as she closed her eyes, And positioned her two feet.

Her hand was held up-right,

Her hand was held up-right, To let the balloon dance,

Her hand was held up-right, To let the balloon dance, In the wind that would take it further,

Her hand was held up-right, To let the balloon dance, In the wind that would take it further, If it only got the chance.

After a moment in the silence,

After a moment in the silence, The little girl opened her eyes.

After a moment in the silence, The little girl opened her eyes. As she did this, she loosened her grip,

After a moment in the silence, The little girl opened her eyes. As she did this, she loosened her grip, And then sent the balloon to the skies.

I considered this symbolic,

I considered this symbolic, And thought of you as my balloon.

I considered this symbolic, And thought of you as my balloon. Who had danced off with the wind,

I considered this symbolic, And thought of you as my balloon. Who had danced off with the wind, And left me way too soon.
