A Simple Date to Every First Date Ever 
A couple enjoy another perfect date 
But how do they all start 

A Simple Date (Shakespearean sonnet) 

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 

A day converted to 14 lines. Did we notice all three parts of a day (morning, afternoon and evening) are worked into the stanza? All in all a nice sonnet. But wait, Could the Simple Date be alluding to much more?
Another example of a poem with more than one meaning, 

Maybe it's just me, but I like to do a bit of planning for my dates, I know, from my experience, there comes a time when all dates go into free fall, and all our plans are put to the test. In a lot of ways, life is like a date. We come face to face with destiny: Whether with tat special someone, a job interview, a child's birthday party, a funeral speech and the day(s) and plans go on and on. 
I'm from the school who believes in life after death (here on earth), I also believe in letting others believe what they choose. Heaven or not, it is scientific fact that every cell of our body goes on as something else. A bit more subtle, we all have in our power to create art, memories, things, ideas and much more, that will live on long after we have passed. An interesting example of this is: Have we ever had someone come up to us and say, "Remember when?" (The computer and our mobile devises add a whole new level to this.). In short our essence (not to be confused wit soul) goes on. 
So we have our Simple date. For after all, what are we? One individual among billions of individuals. All inhabiting one planet in one solar system among "billions" of solar systems. Yet, somehow we matter. Somehow we are allowed to experience this, Some of us are blessed to share this date. Or maybe it's just me. 

To go with this theme: Lou Reed "Perfect Day" 

And we thought we had a messed up first date 

Ever hear of, "Love at first sight"? Studies indicate this may have been written by a guy. Guys are more likely to fall in love based on a girl’s appearance, while girls are more likely to be drawn towards a guy’s behavior. Ian Hecox, Anthony Padilla, of Smosh, studied couples on their first date (or just had a few ad dreams) for a week or two. After going over their findings with the finest minds, in a neighborhood bar, came up with this conclusion. They don't know anything. 
But since they made this video about first dates, we might as well watch it. "EVERY FIRST DATE EVER'"

Another Soul vibrate with a song of joy.

  1. I certainly took the simple date to be alluding to more.
    And, while I don't believe in an afterlife, I do believe that while we are remembered we are not gone.
    I hope to feed a tree when I die, which will give me another form of immortality.

    1. may all your dreams come to pass.
      Your words and all those smiles are your immortality
      Thank you

  2. What a well thought out date! Your words are so full of beauty!

  3. Whoa, was that Tom Jones toward the end of the Perfect Day ad? I didn't think he got out much anymore.

    1. Remarkable video, wasn't it?
