Weeping Willow (From The Film My Girl)

Weeping willow with your tears running down,
why do you always weep and frown?
is it because he left you one day?
is it because he couldnt not stay?
on your branches he would swing,
do you love the happiness that he would bring?
he found shelter in your shade,
we thought his laughter would never fade!
Weeping willow stop your tears,
there is something to calm your fears,
you think death as you do forever part,
i know he will always be in your heart!

    I was emotionally moved by this poem. I have never thankfully been parted with a dear friend. It was sad but Vada kept moving on during the film of My Girl.She made a new friend and will still be friends with that same girl in My Girl 2. We love you Thomas J! You will forever be remembered!

    I've never read any poem better than this, I almost cried when I read the Novel for the first time(eight years ago)
