A sonnet about the sharing of burdens in a relationship - for Search For A WDC Heartthrob
Sharing Is Caring

Before you came, I struggled through my life,
each day more dreary than the one before.
I wasn't even looking for a wife
but knew my soul was crying out for more.

I couldn't bear my burdens all alone
and prayed for someone's help along the way.
Nobody listened to my plaintive moan
until the day when you came out to play.

You danced across the grass, and time stood still;
my breath was stolen by a nimble thief.
Each impish smile you flashed me caused a thrill,
and in your open arms I found relief.

It's better if there's two to share the load
or life becomes a long and lonely road.
