A Simple Date (poem)

Updated on February 15, 2016

And so my dear the hour’s getting late

So good of you to stay with me awhile

To share our tears and mix them with a smile

And make a lifetime of a simple date


It started as a morning spent in style

Which led to afternoon of youthful play

Remember how our hearts would lead the way

To evening wishes kisses we’d compile


Here in the twilight still so much to say

There in your eyes there’s still so much to see

We sampled Joy and all that’s yet to be

Tomorrow’s promise of another day


For now just go inside and wait for me

I’ll be there soon to spark eternity

      That poem was both beautiful and lovely Martin. The words meant so much more than the title. I loved it. I voted up, shared and pinned it'

      Ah, Mh, I love this sweet, a simple date. The ending line is perfect, "I’ll be there soon to spark eternity"

      Your video choice is amazing too. I have never heard that song before, and for it to be sung by so many fabulous artists is over the top ..."A Perfect Day." The entire song, just like your poetry is perfect. I do love how they ended it with "You will reap what you sow" so true! I also love the line, "You made me forget myself." too.

      I think this one may be my new favorite for this day : ) being it has all the "prefect" elements: great writing, imagery and song.

      Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      God bless
