Heartbeat: A Poem


I could dance all night to the rhthym of your heart

Beautiful dreams gradually awakened me to you

Your presence lit me up right from the start

Though I thought you would never come

Broken hearts stringing together

But waiting never made me totally undone

I know God would send you to me

His timing is always perfect

Now things are right and I can see

I will continue to move to the beat of your love

Grateful for your eternal commitment

A true blessing from above

EBower: You like the three line couplet, don't you.

I suppose so. I don't always have a plan when writing poetry; it just flows out of me. Although, if I see I'm starting a certain pattern, then I'll try to continue with it throughout its entirety.

Interesting, anyway. I was looking at this again. Many poets seem to go for the 4 line poem.

Yes, it is a nice poem.

And I also like the line:

'His timing is always perfect'.

Thank you; of course that idea or 'saying' is not originally mine, but I like it, too.

YW. And you know, if you think about it, if His timing is indeed perfect, it must logically refer obliquely to the possibility of a marriage made in heaven ... !

You dipped your pen in a bowl of passion and love as ink. Not many words yet deep enough to take a swim. Beautiful.
