You Live In Me

I shall live in your legend to make
A new spirit now wholly begotten;
For in death, your memory will not forsake
Those words in my soul that are not forgotten.
Your face glows immortal in my heart to save
Even me, for I go too where all must die;
When I would sleep alone in a silent grave
With my love entombed, there you lie.
Your memory will be my triumphant verse
Which my mind has not created yet to read;
And a voice will sing of you to rehearse
Words of praise when the world must heed.
In me you live by the touch of my pen
And I breathe in you through the mouths of men.

    A sonnet, methinks! '...and I breathe in you through the mouths of men' is a perfect phrase to conclude this stylish verse. Luv, Keith :)

    While the entire work is good, the last two lines rise to a level of genius. Exceptional writing! - Chuck

    Okies my Liz yes the general category is RHYME but you know it is a SONNET make a note at the bottom to say what meter you are trying..I will assume it's iambic IF you get 10 syllables per line we can try for iambic [meaning 2 feet per measure unstress/STRESS] & 5 of those is Iambic pentameter. [or drop to 8 syllables and we will have iambic tetrameter]

    Well-crafted poem, Elizabeth. It sure reads like a sonnet to me, but wot do I know about such things? A few 9 and 11 syllable lines mixed in, still makes for a nice sonnet? Congratulations on your win in Tracie's contest~!
