Sharing The Load - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

When a woman marries and become a wife
She learns how to multi-task in her altered life…
Cooking and cleaning... giving birth and screaming
Eventually there is very little time for dreaming

Her husband shares the load and shows her love
Each day he is grateful and thanks the Lord above
He knows how fortunate he is to have her by his side
Many things have changed since she became his bride

Years have passed and adjustments have been made
As they have aged... they have persevered and prayed
With love and commitment they remember their vows
They’re still smiling with gray hair and furrowed brows
