willows weep for me- CM

willows weep, for they know my pain;
               each branch, a worn tissue-
silent dawn awakes ‘fore the tree,
               and my mind lost at dusk

willows weep, for they feel my ache;
               clamored mind hushed from love, 
swaying ‘tween soft muted whispers…
               knowing not they should fear



I chose: 2. “There, within, inside my head, the tree speaks” – The Tree Within
