Image result for weeping willow in cemetery

Seems like ten thousand years passed since I came,
       and here you are in this idyllic scene;
under a weeping willow-   pliant and tame.
I, a soul empath with sorrow aflame,
and now I stand lamenting my sorrow;
              my spirit is supine-   numb and weary,
names in veneration for each morrow.
Oh, is it weakness that makes me teary?
Then, a white aura of strength to borrow; 
       incidental-  my love lays in this  g r e e n  . . .
