The one l’ve always wanted, it was you.
I did not know, could not imagine, who.
Now like an owl, with wisdom I say, you.
How did I get so wise? What let light through?
It was the gayest laughter straight from you;
It was a mind that left no doubt of who,
Another owl, who lit this owl a-new
With sparks of deepest spirit oh, so true,
Who let me see the happy self of you.
And now that I have seen it I’ll pursue,
And I will do the damndest I can do
To make my future life a part of you!
My course is set, my aim is straight and true;
The one I’ve always wanted, it is you!
