Along the riverbank, you took me by the hand
Our fingers entwining the sun warm and shining
You spoke of love through your green eyes
No need for words to compromise
Our steps would meet in harmony; this pace of love was meant to be

A year has passed, of tenderness, of careful words and forgiveness
A love thatís nurtured through actions alone
A feeling that goes deep within my soul
A heartbeat of tranquility, this pace of love was meant to be

Months go by and still we care,
There is warmth and affection that we both can share
Our hearts are molding into one,
The pace of love is now moving on

And through this medieval town we walk
Where each snowflake seems to talk
Of love and togetherness, you become lost in its sentiment
And as you speak those words inside
Our pace of love has now synchronized

Hi Michelle, I loved this poem! I love how the rhyme scheme changes the pace that the reader reads the poem and I love the use of poetic techniques such as triplets and anaphora to build up the imagery of the poem. I love the phrase "a heartbeat of tranquility," I think it is simplicity is what makes it so poignant and clever. The structure of the poem is effective as each stanza highlights a different part of the relationship. I think that your word choice has been well thought out and complements the tone of the poem. I look forward to reading more of your work.
