I was composing an email.
The reply wasn’t like him at all.
He replied he’d get back to me, his heart was way too heavy.
Then a knock on the door, and a phone call.
Both asking, had I heard the news?
I turned on the news to see.
My mom and I stood starring with hearts way too heavy.
In disbelief of what we were seeing on TV.
One day I stood with the world.
A few months later, I stood with a few.
Praying with hearts that were way too heavy.
Heavy hearts people extend sympathy to.
