Weeping Willow

by Rebecca Loebe

 

When he messed you up with the back of his hand

You were only a kid, he was barely a man

His tongue was a sword and he knew how to wield it

But you held your ground and tiptoed around unshielded

 

Come lay your head right next to mine

I won’t pretend I know what it’s like

I’ll give you space and half of my pillow

I’ll calm you down, I’ll stick around

Weeping willow.

 

I see you shake like a dog that’s been kicked

Whenever his name crosses your lips

Most of the days it’s like nothing happened

but sometimes at night I see you fight

With the scars of a champion.

 

Come lay your head right next to mine

I won’t pretend I know what it’s like

I’ll give you space and half of my pillow

I’ll bend and sway when it all blows your way

Weeping willow.

 

I know it’s hard but I’ll hold you harder

I will stand guard against sins of the father

I’ll give you space and half of my pillow

I’ll hold your hand when you can’t hold the dam

I’ll hold you still when no one else will

Oh, plant yourself down, let’s hallow this ground

Weeping willow
