In the shadow of the willow, I have searched for my life. In the coldness of the willow, Broken, I kneeled and cry. In the calmness of the willow, I have felt my absolute helplessness. In the darkness of the willow, I have buried a part of my heart. In the silence of the willow, Desperately, I became a screaming shade. In the womb of the willow, Torn, I have found my nothingness. In the loneliness of the willow, Smaller, and smaller, I disappeared completely. In the disillusion of the weeping willow, Jaded, I searched for forgiveness. I have died, over and over again, At the greatness of the willow. At the greatness of the willow, I watched the sky spilling out of love.
