Poem: Burden of Life
Burden of Life
Carrying burden of life in bucket.
Spilled once, maybe twice, yet did not chuck it.
Friend found to help me carry loads heavy.
Able, at last, to hold bucket steady.
Added whims and dreams, reinforced with fun,
Stirred in hope and love, then ‘fore we were done
Started a family. Then pail sprung a leak.
Bucket’s a burden, remedy must seek.
Found fun had leaked out, but love still survived
Patched hole in bucket, love for life revived.
Carrying burden of life in bucket
Spilled once, maybe twice, still did not chuck it.
