The Katauta is an unrhymed Japanese form consisting of 17 or 19 syllables. The poem is a three-lined poem the following syllable counts: 5/7/5 or 5/7/7.  The Katauta form was used for poems addressed to a lover.

Romance Of My Heart

I remember when
we kissed under the full moon
before you passed from this earth

my lips still taste yours
the memory of us lives
in the romance of my heart
