Dancing With Fireflies

Fourth Love Letter Blog Series post: Write about a song that reminds you of your spouse when you hear it.

I probably have a million and one songs that remind me of my husband, but only one stands out the most. This beautifully written tune marks a special occasion in mine and David’s marriage. Can you guess which moment? I have already given you a hint: marriage.
“Fireflies” by Owl City is mine and David’s favorite song and, of course, we danced to it as our first dance as husband and wife. Whenever I hear this song, I instantly think about him spinning me around the reception dance floor. Not only that flashes in my mind, but some of the lyrics remind me of him and our relationship over
the years.
“I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes, I got misty eyes as they said farewell” reminds me of how I would hate to say goodbye to him. I think my eyes would be misty for a very long time if we ever said goodbye. He’s been so much for me over the years. From the first “I love you” to the vows to each other, I know he’s mine.

I think I’m going to end this post with a bonus poem:



“My Little Corner of the World”

Fireflies – little lights in the night air,
fill the memories of my childhood.
running around my grandmother’s yard with mason jars,
laughing and giggling.
Who knew fireflies
would light up my little corner of the world
as I go through life.
