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!

The yearning to be as we were in the past, young, hopeful, physically vibrant and desiring adventure- love the last lines of this piece: But in the night, and when the rain The troubled torrent fills, I often think I see again The river in the hills; And when the day is very near, And birds are on the wing, My spirit fancies it can hear The song I cannot sing.
