Are you interested in turning your engagement story into a poem?

Hi all,

I am jill - the poem lady and I am new to this community.  I create customized poems for the bride to be.  Most bridesmaids read the poem aloud at the shower and have it framed for the bride as a gift.  My specialty is creating poems out of engagement stories. 

As I am a newcomer, I thought I would offer the first 5 brides who friend me, a complimentary poem  - care of the poem lady.  Friend me and send me your story (you can post it here too) and I will get you a poem that you will treasure for a lifetime.  Thank you for having me here.  I look forward to hearing some terrific tales.

Sample Proposal Story Poem:

We have gathered together those important in my life
To celebrate the day Josh made me his wife
How fondly I recall the 24th of September
It was a day, I for one, will always remember

Picture the two of us, we were a site to see
Me in the Air Force and him in the Army
I was stationed in New Mexico as most of you know
He was in Georgia and I just had to go

I missed him so much that I could nearly have cried
Next thing that I knew, I was there by his side
Being that we hail from the Lone Star State
We were off to Texas Roadhouse and just couldn’t wait

Reservations were made, a table wouldn’t be chancy
This from the man who thinks Olive Garden’s too fancy
The waitresses were sweet which was no abnormality
I just chalked it off to that southern hospitality

All throughout dinner I thought “Oh, what a prize”
As we sat across from each other making lovey dovey eyes
When we finished our drinks, we were as happy as could be
As he took my hand and said how much he loved me

Then down on one knee my dear beloved went
Of course there were peanut shells on his knee that was bent
His eyes they were shining, that’s all I could see
Then I heard those four words “Will you marry me?”

He pulled out a ring and placed it onto my finger
And looked in my eyes as he let the words linger
My face turned bright red, I have to confess
I hugged him and cried and of course I said yes

The cheers and the smiles came from all who were near
As the waitresses announced it for everyone to hear
Later at the car we put on our song
And danced to “Bless the Broken Road” the whole night long

It was the perfect night there under the stars
I never felt anything like the love that was ours
The very next day we truly felt blessed
In our button up shirts and jeans we were dressed

If he had his way, a ball cap he’d choose
As we headed off to the courthouse to say our “I dos”
We are so very different of that there’s no doubt
Everything rolls off his back while I often stress out

He’s tough and outgoing and I tend to be quiet as such
He’s very competitive, and me, not so much
But we make a great couple and that’s what it’s about
After years together we balance each other out

And that’s the whole story, told as best as I could
Of how we became Mr. and Mrs. Osgood
Having you all here is the best gift I can think of
Thank you so much for coming and celebrating our love
