A weeping willow

Theres a tree I know,
Its just around the block.

It stands the test of time,
Just like a ticking clock.

When I pass by this tree,
I have to make a stop.

Of profound beauty, & grace,
So unique, just cant get enough.

Looking at this tree, 
I see the sorrow it displays.

How its leaves, carry a burden
Of what human emotions convey.

Sadness, confusion, turmoil.
Each leaf has a name.

Calling anyone, who can hear it.
To leave there hurt & pain.

Its roots channel, each feeling and
Transplant it to each branch

It grows, long, slender & silvery
Almost, falling to the ground.

Outpouring love & compassion
Knowing, each one of us still has a chance.

To change our conditions, nurture & remain.
Be still in our actions,  Replemish & start again.

Just like the weeping willow flourishes
In the harshest of times, so does
Our stregnth endure, till the end of time.
