Once upon a midnight dreary,
Arose two hearts alive but weary.
His was cold and cracked as ice,
Hers was whole and full of life.
Not once they thought they'd be together,
Apart and silent both forever.
A wish fullfilled but only half,
He stood aside as she walked past.
Another 'man' was in her sights,
'His' heart was soft like thawing ice.
But when outspoken of his care,
She couldn't bring herself to bear,
To leave the one she had ignored,
No pain could two of them afford.
The song was sung none could forget,
Of those who need more than they get.
Life was shared with hearts combined,
No love stronger one could find.
This happy ending was brought to you by:
He who seeks a heart willing to be shared.
