Sorry - the last bit of the last verse should read:-

"What joy is mine
That I will be
With you for all

You will never know just how often I checked this through and still missed the mistake!
Nicely done. I liked the rhythm of four syllables per line, but you got away from that. It would be nice if the whole poem was uniform in meter.
Great thoughts!
Very touching.
This was beautifully written and a blessing to read - it brought tears to my eyes as I imagined the criminal's thoughts that you portrayed in this lovely poem. Yours in Christ
The beat shift in the second stanza bothers me a little, I understand the shift in the final stanza, but the second stands out. The poem is well posed, and carries a wonderful meaning. Generally, well done.
Thank you, Melanie, for composing this poem wth such care. Really like the twist when the Point Of View is revealed.
A very moving poem!
Touched my heart. I loved it! ~LG~
