Music Monday March 28, 2016

I am officially addicted to this week’s Music Monday song. I have been listening to it nonstop for the last five days. And by nonstop I mean on “repeat one” for hours, and hours, and hours. It is very hauntingly bittersweet and lyrical. I keep on imagining the story of the willow tree and all it has seen. I always want to write a poem to explore beyond the song’s lyrics. That, and I think it needs a great animated story, done in soft watercolors. Doesn’t that sound awesome?

  


Down by the water, under the willow

Sits a lone ranger, minding the willow

He and his wife, once lived happily

Planted a seed, that grew through the reeds

Summers and winters, through snowy Decembers

Sat by the water close to the embers

Missing out the lives that they once had before


I wouldn’t leave you

I would hold you

When the last day comes

What if you need me

Won’t you hold me

On the last day, our last day


Mr. & Mrs., dreamed of a willow

Carving their names, into their willow

If he had spoken, love would return

Spoken inside, too soft to be heard

Summers and winters, through snowy Decembers

Sat by the water, remembering embers

Missing out the lives that they once had before


I wouldn’t leave you

I would hold you

When the last day comes

What if you need me

Won’t you hold me

On the last day, our last day


Ahhhhh, ahhhhh…


Somewhere the timing will all come together

The mishaps will turn into sunny Decembers

The lovers will be able to find their willow


I wouldn’t leave you

I would hold you

When the last day comes

I wouldn’t leave you

I would hold you

When the last day comes

What if you need me

Won’t you hold me

On the last day, our last day comes

Ahhhhh, ahhhhh…
