I want to lie under the willow tree,
close my eyes and let the sun warm my face.
I want to listen to the quiet and feel the solitude
while playing back memories of the lives that once were.
I wonder how today fits in with the yesterdays,
and I wonder how tomorrow can possibly speak to today.
I want to reach out and touch them
and feel their hands on my cheek,
caressing it with love that I’ll never feel again.
I want to lie under the willow tree and wrap myself up in its shadow…and go back in time.
