Weep along with Willow


Weep along with willow

Banking high

Your tides of grief to tell

The river rolling

With the stars

Through willow leaf of hair

That drapes a caped

Embrace of empathy

So be entwined with twig

And learn to shoot a root anew

And snap to cracking particles

When time is done and ready to

Give –up your sadness

To the skies

Such sap when kept

Can bend and weaken

Even the strongest bark

The trunk like heart

It too can split

Just like the willow

Into twain

But starts again

To grow aloft and in that

Height she bears her loss

And reaches out with branches

Stretched to hold her power

Out erect with all her might

And can she wills

And she do live again
