The day in November

The day in November

A Story by D Connolly
"

My memories of meeting David

"

It was November and the chill in my soul was leaving

I had emptied myself of pain and begun to fill

The cavernous spaces within

With happiness and new life

I could finally hear the birds singing

You held a door for me; my first memory of you

Some days later

Offered me a smile

I was quite astonished that such a nice man

Would even see me

I didn't dwell on the fantasy

Just a whimsy, nothing more

And then your coat was offered the day it rained

A kiss on my cheek was stolen in a friend's kitchen, like a child

I began to thaw in the winter heat

And you charmed me like a gentleman on the first date

Taking our time

Making sure the bond was more than fancy

Meeting the parents

Then building a life with each other

Always laughing

Always good natured

Talking through issues

Practicing trust

And as we watched the sun set by the bridge

I told you a story of it's history

Completely made up but very romantic

Turning to me, you asked me to be your wife

In two days we will say our vows

And promise our futures to each other

And I've never been so happy

Or so at home

Or felt such peace

As I do when I'm with you

D. connolly,
"The day in November"
"It was November and chill in my soul was leaving" What a beautiful first step leading into this gradual process of love's entrance. Yours and a to be husband.
Something I really liked in this story was the perfect timing of the relational onset. Not to early or late."I had emptied myself of pain and begun to fill the cavernous spaces within within with new happiness and life. I could finally hear the birds singing. Even if this above beauty was brought on by love's sunshine that's way cool too.
Anyway I loved entering into your blessed story.
Also the moment by moment is felt in your writing, it somehow is felt. Really good.
blessings,
Kathy

Beautiful tribute to a significant other! Many ways that many people could relate to your well-expressed details, even if one never had this experience. I could feel the love & trust building thru the journey of the poem. Sorry we haven't seen as much of you around here lately . . . always love reading you . . . and I've had some absences myself, as well! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

so cool and refreshing to focus on the way my parents taught me that love should be... so much sex distraction on all media does not lift our humanity up at all ..only inflames .. love this romance story ..very easy reading .. not a hitch .. but happy for your speaker getting hitched ;)

my pleasure!!!
Love the feel to this one Dani...Honest and open, about knowing the path to take without needing to look at a map and arriving at the destination that both hoped it would take them to. And the mention of the bridge story too, makes complete sense even to those that haven't read it....Which I recommend they do. :)

You're welcome so much :)
This is such a calming piece. A relationship a rely on especially after a painful past can feel like a hot coffee on a cold morning. I love this line
"I began to thaw in the winter heat"

Nice work Dani.

Thank-you so much Queen
So thick with the dreamy waves of romance that float, surge, and lift us to previously unknown heights of ecstasy. Once we ride that wave, we never forget.
