Ca·dence[kay-dns] noun
1. Rhythmic flow of a sequence of sounds or words
2. Timing of events on a human scale; of musical sounds and silences, of the steps of a dance, or the metre of spoken language and poetry

Together we made a new song. And that song has his own rhythm, somewhat like our own. Not unlike an echo. He makes musical sounds in between the silences. His heartbeat is the combination of ours. And he is the little rhythm our lives now dance to. Our Cadence.
