good design?

Hi all,
I have a php script which reads a XHTML document using the XML parser.
Basically it parses the XML document depending on the request, to fetch certain text and display an image. viz. load the parser, parse document, close the parser. Everytime a request comes this routine is repeated.
Is this a good design? What I mean is, is it possible to load the parser once, and parse the XML document as and when the request comes?
