Willow Tree

Willow tree, I’ve watched and I’ve waited
Crying forlorn on the bank of a stream
For some loss of a friend or lover
Hoping that time will intervene

Is all that you need just someone to believe
Stand under your boughs and reach out a hand
The truth of the hand that touches you leaves
Well now that you’re all that you are

Willow tree wooden, I’ve watched and waited
I’ve been lit both by moonbeam and sun of the day
For some tragic loss of a friend or lover
Hoping that time will pass away
