Willow Weep For Me

Writer(s): Ann Ronnel

Willow weep for me, willow weep for me,
Bend your branches green along the stream that runs to the sea.
Listen to my plea, listen willow and weep for me,
Gone is my lover’s dream, lovely summer dream,
Gone and left me here to weep my tears into the stream,
Sad as I can be, hear me, willow and weep for me.
Whisper to the wind and say that love has sinned
To leave my heart a-breaking and making a moan,
Murmur to the night to hide her starry night,
So none will find me sighing and crying all alone,
Oh weeping willow tree, weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me.
When the shadows fall, bend oh willow and weep for me.
