My First Date
Author: Del


(A True Story)

It was summertime, I had just turned sixteen,
And I was waiting for my very first date.
I was so nervous and excited,
I hoped he wouldn't be late.

I introduced him to my Mom and Dad,
When he came to the door around eight.
I still can remember my Mom telling Bob,
Now don't bring her home so late.

There was a big space between us,
As down our tree-lined street we walked.
None of the guys had cars in those days,
So we strolled down the street, while we talked.

A carnival was in town that week,
So that's where we were heading.
I had met Bob about two months before,
At my second cousin's wedding.

When we got there it was really crowded,
Calliopes blaring and people everywhere.
It was getting kinda windy,
But nobody seemed to care.

'What would you like to do.' Bob asked.
I said I really didn't know.
'Would you like to play games, go on rides,
Or take in a Midway show?'

Well, we opted for some shooting games,
I knew Bob would be good at that.
He won for me a big, brown teddy bear
With a bright red heart shaped hat.

Then I remember going on a ride,
Where we were alone in a very small room.
We had to wait till the rooms were filled,
Before the ride could resume.

I was hugging my big brown teddy bear.
We had run out of things to say.
Finally Bob looked at me very shyly,
And took my teddy bear away.

He gently put his hand on my chin,
And looked into my eyes.
Then he kissed me oh, so tenderly,
WOW! what an unsuspecting surprise!

All of a sudden the room started shaking,
My teddy bear fell to the ground.
The walls and the ceiling started moving
And everything went round and round.

It only lasted a very short time,
But, this kiss had started me reeling.
I'll always remember the double dose I got
Of this dizzy, wonderful feeling.

Finally we slowly started walking home.
Too soon we were at my door.
Where he took me lovingly in his arms,
And tenderly kissed me once more.

I loved this poem Del, it was so beautiful and romantic. I was wishing it would never end when I read it, it was like reading a fairy tale or fantasy out of a book, and you never would want it to end. That means it's good alright! I loved this poem, never quit writing, I'll never stop reading! :)
