Trinket -- an Acrostic Poem 


Trinket of mine you are
Right from the very start 

I knew you'd be for me 
No one finer I'd see 

Keeping score these ten years 
Every day calmed my fears 

Trinket to me you are

Ah, sweet! And I'm sure you are equally treasured.

Some trinkets aren't treasures - others are treasures we don't let go of! Obviously she's your treasure :)

A sweet acrostic and proof that trinkets can be kept for ever.

Let's hope she has a trinket of you too. Now where is her poem of you?!

One can't imagine! A loved one can often appear to be taken for granted that one just seems to be unfair to her presence. It is often a fault of familiarity that clouds the mind.

Awwww... but that last line gives me a little pause. I'm thinking a bit like Hank, maybe this familiarity is causing the bloom to fade from the rose? I hope not.

I was reading AWWWW so sweet, until your last line threw me. Maybe your trinket turned to gold. :)

Thanks, guys. I changed my last word from were to are. It now fits the poem's tense. I really did mean 'were' but to make it right with Gramar I would have to have a transition line or two.
