Heavy Hearts


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.
