The Weight That We Bear

Heavy eyes and heavy hearts

Will bear the weight a back cannot.

The weight of days that run too late

Would leave a weathered spine unstraight.

But eyes will keep our minds awake

When time’s the only thing at stake.

The pain of love that’s come and gone

A body could not carry on

The heart will persevere in time

When all its pieces recombine…

… for broken hearts and tired eyes

are stronger than they seem sometimes.
