"How Lovely Is My Sweetheart's Voice" -- an 8X8

I am calling this form an 8x8; 8 lines, 8 syllables.  I don't know if this is an already established poetic form, or if I actually invented something. I am sure I didn't but this one was very special to me.

How lovely is my Sweetheart's voice
Echoing around canyon walls
In my mind; crying like the wind
A mournful song that moans sweetly
"I long for you, my Cherish'd One,"
As she moves in, around, and through
Me, seeking to make us be one,
Dissolving distance, You Are Here!
