This is not possible.

Your code must have a bug.

You're asking the DOMTreeWalker to only show you text nodes, so there's 
no way you'll get any element nodes. Of course, you can always call 
getParent() on each text node, but perhaps you should instead have the 
DOMTreeWalker show you element and text nodes:

DOMTreeWalker* walker =
         DOMNodeFilter::SHOW_ELEMENT | DOMNodeFilter::SHOW_TEXT,
