Heavy Heart Rd.

My heart weighs heavy

As these tears start flowing.

You and I were not ready

For the day now showing.

Heavy and full,

my heart pumps faster-

And fills my soul

With thoughts of disaster.

The sun showed up

not casting your shadow

as if that wasn’t enough

my waters became shallow.

“Why?” I ask. “Why me?”

The only words coming out.

For without you, I couldn’t be

And I say that with zero doubt.

Hard to swallow, I lift my heart

To relieve myself of this heavy load

And spread my arms out so far

Welcoming others driving this road.
