Damet garm means to have "warm breath" or be alive. Mehdi Akhavan Sales (OMID) used this expression in poetry, specifically in "Zemestan," when he said "damet garm o saret khosh bad." It is good for your dam (breath) to be garm (warm) because it means that you are alive. It is used as an expression of gratitude.
