POEMS: “Love Changes Everything” by Trina Graves (marriage)


“Love Changes Everything”

‘I’m never going to get married’
‘My animals are all I need’
The young girl would often say
To whoever would take heed

Then one day she met someone
And took a chance of fate
Would he be the one for her
The consequence may be too great

He thought she was too young for him
But she did not agree
The wait seemed endless for him to choose
Somehow she’d make him see

Before too long they were together
A couple, an item, a pair
Their love for each other began to grow
As more time they began to share

The future for her began to change
Now there were new ideas to explore
How happy she’d be with him by her side
To love and be loved forever more

At first there were the wedding plans
Which had to change when fate stepped in
A baby on the way to complete the change
So much joy these events will bring

Due to a difference in religion
Their marriage will not be trouble-free
But love will carry them over many hurdles
Respect and truth, give and take, cést la vie

    Thanks for sharing another of my more personal family poems Amira. ❤
    For a bit more of the 'story'… Emma and Paul have an age gap of 11 years, as mentioned they now have 4 children (aged 15 to 4). As with all married couples they have had their ups and downs but they continue to work their way through the rough patches. Emma's love for animals is still strong, they have 2 dalmatians who have had 2 litters of puppies in recent years, which was a lot of fun and hard work, but also a great learning experience for the children.


    1. This is truly an amazing story of how love really “conquers all” and goes beyond all “perceived limitations” such as differences in religion, age, etc… when there is love, none of those “differences” matter! Lovely story about the dalmatians as well, what a beautiful opportunity for the children! (I wish I could have been there to see all those cute little puppies!) This story restores our faith in the Power of Love! Thank you for sharing! Love and light back to you ❤

        Thank you Amira. Yes, the puppies provided lots of fun and experiences for the children who were all involved in looking after them, which made them very suitable for moving on to homes with children. The hardest learning experience was letting them go though, especially of the ones they individually got attached to. A couple of weeks ago one of the first litter came back for a few days to be looked after while it’s owners got married. Now just about a year old it still remembered Seth (the oldest boy who cherished this particular puppy) and followed him around everywhere! ❤


        1. Oh my goodness, how amazing is that! This proves how they never forget the people they love! It melts my heart to hear this story, is so touching and sweet! ❤ That's is nice they remain in touch with the people that adopted him, 🙂
