Wiilow Tree - Poem by Courtney Redmond

Let her weep
For her tears mean nothing
They just flow to the earth
To begin another’s life
Oh willow tree willow tree
Please don’t cry onto the riverbank.
It’s not healthy for you nor for me
I know you have been hurt, and I have too.
I see the marks on you bark
Man has made those marks
As one man has made mine

I wish I could heal your wounds,
As you have healed mine.
Willow tree willow do not die
Do not wither in the earth, and fall to oblivion
As others have left me
I can’t handle that no more
I need something to last here.

As time drifts on
And the seasons change
I want you willow to be there for me
I don’t want a man to hurt me
I don’t want a friend to betray me
I just want you
Lets spend today consoling our selves
As our lives and dreams die on as we all succeed time
