This Weight

There is a heaviness
in my heart
that took up residence
when you left. 

It's a permanent 
sort of thing,
this weight. 

A change of address
took place
but nothing changed.  

It is years
of laughter
and tears
and every memory
in between,
this weight,
and I can't seem
to set it down. 

My heart holds on
as it grows stronger
from carrying around
the burden of you
and I know
I will never be rid
of it,
this weight.
