"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Like light and dark we belong together,
‘Till there’s light, I’m lost in darkness with fear.
Thither can’t be light without darkness, e’er,
I could not exist without you, my dear.

A jigsaw puzzle represents my life,
And thou art the peace that I have missed.
I love you so, I need to be thy wife,
For with you, I am content in this bliss.

Was it destined that we be together
From the day we were put on this planet?
Or did our hearts find it to be better
That we each become one the day we met?

O’ whate’er the privy answer may be,
I know in my heart I shall always love thee.

I don't know what inspired me to write this sonnet in particular, but it inspired me to love. I hope it inspires something in others too.

Adorable!  I loved this poem, I especially liked the Old English that you managed to weave in! Great job and keep writing:)
