Entwined commitment so dear

talking nose to nose.

Whispered endearment in ear.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Love blooms secure and sincere.

Like a brilliant red rose

love does not domineer.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Entwined commitment so dear

that hearts and minds compose.

Love commitment improves each year.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Love blooms secure and sincere.

Long-lasting love always knows,

celebrated love with cheers.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Entwined commitment so dear.

Sweet romantic conduct grows

It's unquestionable and clear.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Love endures whether far or near.

Lasting love swells and glows.

Commitment, romantic, and dear

love endures each year.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Author's notes: While I have written numerous Shakespearean sonnets, this is my first Villanelle poem. Thank you for reading. Would love your comments.
