the weeping of the willow...

I know a girl...

a special, unique girl

The girl sits

On a wild unkempt lawn

beneath a tall, demeaning willow tree



I know a girl...

a girl that feels

pain

and sorrow


As the sun sets into the folds of the sky

The girl looks out into the jet black night and sees

no stars, none at all

only a fierce, cruel world


I know a girl...

A girl who has never felt the tenderness of a mothers touch

Nor the stern but kind hand of a father

Her heart grows colder

and harder within each passing

It seems as though

the girl has lost all hope


and then one day

the girl was gone

no trace left behind

people soon forgot

went on with their daily lives



Only the willow tree left

its leaves, once livley

now wilted away

brown clunks of charred branches

gnarled trunk ripped from its roots

it waits for someone to take the girls place

to sit beneath it

to show it that it is not alone in this world
