My heart soars

My heart soars with the thought of you
Time stands still and memories clear
Impart my feelings to explore
My heart soars with the thought of you
“Third time a charm” for your breakthrough
Once down the aisle for me, dear
My heart soars with the thought of you
Time stands still and memories clear


Dedicated to Ray for our 20th Anniversary


“A triolet is a one stanza poem of eight lines. Its rhyme scheme is ABaAabAB and often all lines are in iambic tetrameter: the first, fourth and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines, thereby making the initial and final couplets identical as well.

The form stems from medieval French poetry – the earliest written examples are from the late 13th century.” ~~ Wikipedia

This is my first attempt at the poetry form: Triolet.
8 lines, 8 syllables each,
The 1st, 4th and 7th lines are the same, as are the 2nd and 8th
