Poem: Iambic Pentameter: My Everything Essay

414 words - 2 pages

It does seem so odd that the only boyWho would not change, now brings me so much joyWith eyes I can get lost in for hoursI knew that he had some sort of powersHis "oh so" strong jaw bones and wavy hairHe made it impossible not to careHis faith close to heart, he carries alongHe has ended up making me so strongGlancing at me sharply with that same lookThere he goes, away ...view middle of the document...

I had been his at first glanceWith his holey jeans and his cowboy bootsHe has a background of strong country rootsNothing about him is to be called modAnd shoulders he has are so very broadA blessing sent to me once in disguiseOne heartfelt option has opened my eyesThis love we obtain has no end or fearsThrough good and bad I shed my share of tearsOn knees and elbows he said he would crawlAcross the sea or over the great wallWhatever the barrier, we will lastWe are about the future not the pastAs far as his features, nothing he lacksAnd hunting he does, while following tracksOn the diamond his face never budgesBut games lost, he accounts for his grudgesHis hand so perfectly contours to mineThe same way a vineyard cradles the vineGod has a reason why our paths crossedSimply to love with no price tag or costAnd when I see him my heart skips a beatForever with him will be like a treatOne person knows what our future will holdAnd only He could ever be so boldWe will always be together you'll seeI know God has a plan for him and me
