He’s Not Heavy

Different things seem to trigger and/or soothe my heart. The other day the sun was shining beautifully and I rolled the window down. Then a song that I was never particularly fond of came on the radio. He’s Not Heavy, He’s My Brother by the Hollies. This stanza:


It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy he’s my brother

That one hurt, but at the same time, comforted. Grief is weird.
