A Willow Tree

 

I’ll plant a weeping willow

For all the world to see

And when the wind blows through its branches

It will be whispering to me

 

I’ll plant a weeping willow

Not too far from the sea

And salt spray from the ocean waves

Will be carried back to me

 

I’ll plant a weeping willow

Beneath which I will sit

And when I look around my world

Everything will fit

 

I’ll plant a weeping willow

Beneath which I will sleep

For when I pass on from this world

My ashes will it keep.
