What lovely sentiments to your husband. I too wrote about my soul mate because that was the easiest for me to write about! What you wrote is literally what my fiancée and I have talked about at length.
So I love the words and picture you draw out in our minds.
I was wondering which one was free verse and which one was closed-form? I could not find the rhyme scheme in them so are they both free verse?
In the “My Love” piece I do no know if you want to put any punctuation or if its all supposed to run together or if it is a stylistic choice.
“The days have grown brighter/ since (the day) you cam into my life.”
I kind of like when the lines flow together instead of end in short sentences. But again that may be a stylistic choice. This is one reason why I think critiquing poetry is so difficult because its so open to interpretation.
Overall what a lovely piece you have written.
