As each and every year goes by
those who love her wonder why
the end came short and with such pain
that we would not see her like again.
Unlike all others in filmdom's bank
Susan held a higher rank
than most whose best was just routine;
Hers was the star that would always be seen.
Her films are ours to watch at will
and allow us to be near her still.
So grieve not because Susan's "dead"
for we can always treasure Red.
