“Little Willow” – performed by Paul McCartney

Bend, little willow
Wind’s gonna blow you
Hard and cold tonight

Life, as it happens
Nobody warns you
Willow, hold on tight

Nothing’s gonna shake your love
Take your love away
No one’s out to break your heart
It only seems that way. Hey

Sleep, little willow
Peace gonna follow
Time will heal your wounds

Grow to the heavens
Now and forever
Always came too soon

Little willow

Nothing’s gonna shake your love
Take your love away
No one’s out to break your heart
It only seems that way. Hey

Bend, little willow
Wind’s gonna blow you
Hard and cold tonight

Life, as it happens
Nobody warns you
Willow, hold on tight

Ah, little willow
Little willow

The song “Little Willow” was performed by Paul McCartney and it is one of the songs that can definitely be used during a funeral service for a mother, a father, a wife, a husband or a partner.

After the body of a family member has undergone direct cremation or after the burial, there is always that feeling of emptiness because of the loss of a physical figure in the house. If you have a friend or your family is undergoing such crisis and you are wondering how you can help, the simple gesture of playing this song and letting everyone grieving to listen to the lyrics of it will be enough.

The song talks about life being temporary. No one will live with someone for the rest of his life because unexpected things can happen anytime. You cannot really tell what will happen in the future as the lyrics would say, “Life, as it happens. Nobody warns you”.

When death happens, even if it is very hard to do, you must move on and carry on with your life. The song also says that even in death, nothing can change the way you love your deceased family member. That love will remain forever and someday you will see each other in another realm.
