Sappy Love Poem contest--Final Day

Hi all!!! Thanks to everyone who has participated! This has been fun. Only one more day and here we go!


Here's how our poem shapes up so far.



I remember the night that we first met,
the gaze in your eyes, I'll never forget.
Warm and bright, deep and wild,
The entire world spun within your smile.

The cool breeze blew making the night turn cold,
But the love I was feeling burned my soul.
Like a fire in the night
To keep me warm all the days of my life.


Here's stanza three. Remember 10,10,6,10

Seven years later we are still in love,
Shining bright as the light from up above.
I'm so glad I found you,

Okay working on that last line. And you figured out another rule, the rhyme has to fit the pattern. The rhyme pattern you've picked is AABB. That means line 1 and line 2 rhyme and then line 3 and 4 have to rhyme. So the word to match is "you"...

Seven years later we are still in love,
Shining bright as the light from up above.
I'm so glad I found you,
living out together God's holy cue.

Yeah, that was a rough one because of the hanging phrase. Whew!

Hi all,

Thanks for the last lines. There is still a little time left.
We have quite the list to choose from.
You know how I choose. I put all the names in a bowl and my hubby picks one out.
So, stay tuned tomorrow to hear the final poem and see who won the fab earrings!!

Ok, here it is..............

I remember the night when we first met,
I gazed in to your eyes, I will never forget,
But we being strange, we knew we weren't sure,
But took only a moment to see it was pure.

The cool breeze blew making the night turn cold,
But the love I was feeling, was burning inside,
I looked in your eyes, you made me feel bold,
I wanted to run, your gaze would not let me hide.

Seven year later, I look in your eyes,
The gaze that we hold, it keeps us alive.
All that we can hope, for others like we, Is feeling the love and being so free...........
