Remembering my wedding day... From so far away...
Missing You

I stand here crying
And desp’rately cling;
It hurts – the longing
To hear your voice.
I stand here again
With paper and pen
And think back to when
We made a choice.

You’re so far away –
The Chesapeake Bay;
I’ll be there someday
Without demands.
Far away it seems –
I live on the dreams
We shared to extremes
When we joined hands.

The Cyhydedd Hir (Cuh-hee-dedd heer) is a poem of 16 lines comprised of two sets of eight line stanzas with two quatrains each. The first three lines of each quatrain consists of five syllables, the fifth word of each line rhyming. The fourth line of the first stanza has four syllables and rhymes with the fourth line of the second stanza. Thus, the fourth lines are the main rhymes of the poem, while the other three lines are rhymes amongst themselves. The second set of quatrains contains a new rhyme at the end of the line four, just as each quatrain contains a new rhyme for each of the three five-syllable lines above it.
