The Buzz Of First Dates
The doorbell rings..
Oh my lord he’s early
I suddenly become all shy and girlie
Knock knock.. oh he’s an impatient one
Maybe, I should bail and run?
But no it’s not nice to shun, I shall stay
I open the door and I say..
“Hi how are you…. Where are we going today?”
His answer is mysterious..
Sounding all imperious he says “You’ll find out when we get there.”
“Oh gosh am I dressed right for the occasion?”
I ask in the hope of gentle persuasion,
“Are you trying to get clues on where we are going?”
He laughs out loud and can’t hide his amusement,
Much to my disdain and utter confusion.
As we walk side by side towards the dock
I notice a big round metal clock..
Ding Dong it chimes seven times out loud-
As I notice the sun setting across the clouds.
Oh how the butterflies in my stomach churn
As we approach the end of the pier and turn
In front of us stands a giant boat
“Oh gosh is that for us?” I whisper, the words barely escaping my throat
I had never been aboard such a vessel
It felt so wonderful and special
Thank you it really is a treat
And a surprise that will be hard to beat
As we climb aboard all excited
I wonder how I have been so short sighted
This man is going to be my future
For better or worse in our joint adventure.
