Weep Like A Willow


Do not weep for me Weeping Willow
Weep for the long years of suffering
Weep for the misunderstandings of why we are here,
Weep for the lost and the broken
Weep for the loves lost
Weep for the earth and the flowers and the trees

Weep for the sky we torture with our blindness
Weep for the river we pollute with our carelessness
Weep for the ground we abuse with our emptiness
Weep for the animals we kill, including ourselves
You stand so lovely and silently weeping,
I touch you and you are cold,
Alone, Weeping and Cold
And yet you stand,
A tribute in how to weep.
I will Weep like a Willow.
