The second date

 

It was your persistence

That did me in

Why you wanted a second date

Was quite beyond me

 

Your months of asking

Your patient desire

Made me say ok fine

Just one more, then we are done

 

You totally outdid yourself again

From the perfect first date

The next clocked in

As wondrously the same

 

You planned the whole route

From fetching me

To the stroll along the river

Passed a waterfall to settle at a lake

 

You had a picnic basket

Packed with my dietary needs

You chose a green blanket

To fit in with the grass and leaves

 

You brought binoculars and a book

So I could see the birds

And understand there calls

From our little nook

 

You didn’t force conversation

You let me relish the silence

Then cracked jokes in cute moments

Sat beside me in such comfort

 

A complete gentleman the whole way through

The stroll there, by the waterside

The walk back, without a care

You seemed so content, in the moments there

 

Thanks for the date

I think it went great

But you need to realise

Someone else must be worth your wait
