I found your face in outer space,
Beyond the farthest stars.
My ship was light, l traveled right,
Sped past the moon and Mars.
Venus was nice, but much too coy;
I wanted someone real.
I shot away from her fake joy
In search of my ideal.
Pluto, oh, a cold, cold hag;
I warped away so fast!
Better off with a wrinkled bag
In permanency cast!
I banked to left, then flew straight on,
Saw glitt’ring stars unknown.
A heaven of jewels spread out like dawn—
And one standing all alone.
So radiant ’twas, green, purple, gold.
Could hardly trust my eyes!
I felt my self in a magic zone
At edge of Paradise!
I nearer went; it shrank away.
In essence, it was shy.
This first for me— on my last day—
To kiss the world goodbye.
Then, when l stopped, it grew so small—
A woman was, so fair!
Nay! She was more than beautiful,
The answer to my prayer!
I leaped from ship, stood by her side;
I breathed, but don’t know how!
I only know that l felt pride.
To see her eyes aglow!
You know the rest, for it was you,
Who’re now my own dear wife.
The loveliest “it” I ever knew,
Sweet partner of my life!
