My dream date
Is an experience I must wait
For to absorb the perfect day,
But only when I have found my soulmate.
Underneath an entirely cloudless day
And never a sign of an oncoming storm,
We two surround ourselves with an admirable view
That's not contaminated by another human life-form.
Around us, there are no other sounds
Apart from our voices and the birds a-whistling.
I lay down next to your pretty face
And notice your bright smile a-sizzling.
After a sandwich each, we throw on the iPod
And through the meadow we waltz to R.E.M
While you have that single rose in your mouth,
Passionately grinding through its stem.
Together we fall down
And make the sweet butterflies flutter,
Followed by a series of kisses
So strong we almost smother.
Hours of chat passes and the sun sets,
The clouds of twilight shape a love-heart.
Nightfall comes and so does a star
Shooting above us like a dart.
I long so much for this priceless day,
But I also long to find you too, Soulmate.
The end of a lifetime is unpredictable,
So please oh please don't come too late.
