Love Song

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 5/22/2016

Removed for at least a little while because I just sent it to Chicken Soup for the Soul. We'll see if they like it. :) if not I'll put it back here.

Oh Damari!

Damari! This is sooo beautiful! The poem's rhythm is so lovely and it flows so well!
The melody may become rough;
Days ahead will seem very tough.
Incandescence may fade for days,
And joy may not bring forth it's plays;
Those are some of my favorite lines! Words like incandescence really gives you a specific meaning and this poem a wonderful feel. Great job (as usual!)
Blessings to you!

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! Incandescence is actually the word I used multiple times a day when I was trying to explain to Arthur how happy I was during our courtship. Also because the comment I get most often is "You're glowing!" :) so it has a bit of a special meaning.
Thank you again! God bless you, dear.

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

I'm loving all this

I'm loving all this inspiration you've had! This is another lovely piece. I will say, I really enjoyed your use of "mould"--after reading the previous line, I was expecting "love and hold", so I was pleasantly surprised. Again, I can feel your excitement buzzing in these words! Have you guys picked a month yet for your wedding? Of course you don't have to say--I was just wondering if it's close!

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Thank you so much! Yes, we

Thank you so much!
Yes, we just decided on December 23rd. :) it's kinda cool because that is my maternal grandparents wedding date (it'll be their 65th wedding anniversary), and I am wearing my maternal grandmother's wedding dress. :) pretty special right there. :)
Some days December feels really far off but honestly time has been just flying by so I'm sure it won't be difficult to wait. :)

How Exciting!

Oh Damari! That sounds so exciting! It has been a dream of mine to have a Christmas-time wedding someday, but most of my family is against it for logistical and logical reasons. I still want it though! Hopefully someday when I meet and marry my man, he'll back me up on that Christmas wedding idea ;)
I am still so excited and happy for you! Blessings!

Your joy and excitement shine

Your joy and excitement shine through so clearly in this! Lovely song. : )
