Mother Willow

Mother Willow

my heart, my tree.

My despair, my self-hate, my worthlessness,

take from me.


Mother Willow

your long branches wrap me,

My hope, my self-love, my purpose,

help me to see.


Like a mother I can only remember,

calming, soothing, swaying, holding.


You wipe my tears and give me rest.

You assure me that this too will pass.
