He ain’t heavy: uncle and brother Tad, thank you for coming to see us in Houston @tadsethparzen

tad parzenBrother and uncle Tad, there are so many things that I want to tell you and share with you.

But right now I just want to thank you for bringing your family to Houston to spend a long weekend with us last weekend. That meant the world to me, Tracie P, and the girls.

Thinking about the time we spent together in Texas, so many songs from our childhood and adolescence brim in my mind. But today, I’m thinking of another song. This one, every last word of it, is for you…

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I’m strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We’ll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If I’m laden at all
I’m laden with sadness
That everyone’s heart
Isn’t filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

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

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother…
