...for Juvie

Whene'er you feel distress my own heart aches,
that you should suffer so without release,
I would sustain the hurt for both our sakes,
absorb the pain, and set your soul at peace.
For I can ne'er be still whilst you are fill'd
wih anguish, your tranquillity diseas'd,
we two as one, our aggravations spilled
and blended 'til the torment be appeas'd.
To find a way from darkness into light,
to cast away our feelings of despair
we will prevail, that all our days be bright,
and you shall rest content within my care.
   This spell of sadness soon will disappear,
   for with my love you'll overcome your fear.

Sonnets are always so special to me and this one fits right in. You have strength and weakness, sadness and resolution in your sonnet and it is such a satisfying read! :)

This piece is filled with love and the testimony of the deep covenant that you share. It is heartening to see such devotion when families around are crumbling. Well done, Keith! Donna
