And now that I have you at last,|
It seems that I have lived my life,
Walking through the emptiness,
I was too numb to feel.
But then you came into my heart,
And made me realize my past,
Was desolation and despair,
With which alone I could not deal.
Now suddenly my world is vast,
And beautiful beyond belief,
Like water to the desert dust,
Your love has filled the hollowness.
You came in darkness, like a light,
And guided me to happiness.

This form is a Bref Double.
The Bref Double is a French form that looks suspiciously like a
sonnet, but the rhyme scheme is completely different, and it
does not have to be written in Iambic Pentameter, it can be
written in hexameter, tetrameter, or whatever you prefer.
It is written as three quatrains and a couplet, and the rhyme
scheme looks like this: ( the 'x' lines denotes lines where no
rhyme is required)
