So very nervous, as he dressed
He felt it was an enormous test
It had been a very, very long time
Since he’d been on a date, to wine and dine
He looked in the mirror, and wiped his brow
What would Katie think of him now?
Only 2 years since she had passed
It was too soon, it was too fast
He had been lonely, there was no doubt
But this felt insane, this ‘going out’
With a stranger, a complete unknown
When he and Katie, for years had grown
And settled down to married life
So proud he was of his beautiful wife
‘go on out’ he heard her whisper
She mustn’t understand how much he missed her
Was it really her he heard or
Was he just being absurd
Then on the screen he heard a bing
It was her, the date,
‘what should I bring?
And how will I know that it is you?
Can I ask, what will we do’?
‘Meet me by the tower clock,
Down beside the river dock.
I am quite tall and a hefty fella
But I will carry a pink umbrella
I thought we might just go for a walk
Take in the sights and well, just talk
This is all so new to me
We’ll take it easy, and just see
If we wish to stay out late
We’ll save it for another date’
