Ask the Weeping Willow

I asked the Willow tree
Why it weeps
Why it’s leaves
Reach for the ground
The other trees
It always seems
their arms are upward bound
On the breeze it answered me
This was the reply
I weep for those who have lost their love
For those who can only sigh
I weep for those who have no more tears
For those too long forlorn
I weep for all the hopeless souls
Who daily face their storms
Then I knew as I gazed upon
The beauty of that tree
Why it is the Willow weeps
It weeps for the likes of me
