I’ve often gazed among the stars
to find the love I’ve lost
And though by chance I’d find a friend
our paths have never crossed.
Many’s the path I’ve blazed with sword
Twelve numbers the galaxies
That I have searched upon my quest
To find you, my Lady.
I’ve crossed from suns to Sextus V
Asteroids, black holes, it’s told
I’ve braved dragons, demons and defied
The Gods for a love so bold.
Lo! I’ve looked both far and wide
To seek the Lady of my dreams
And then I’d almost reach her
Only to find her gone for years.
Brave Dartanian (yes!) once said to me
“A lady’s often not
Where you expect to find her, friend,
She’s probably forgot.”
Now Valjus said “To advertise
It is by far the best.”
Though Odin’s son he ne’er did find
The lady of his quest.
Jason Lord, his words were wise,
His methods most precise.
But when upon his fateful quest
Got trapped not once, but twice!
Many’s the time I thought I’d found
The one of whom I seek
Only to find after much travail
It would last for but a week.
Thus my voice would often say
“True love is never true.”
The very next day if not before
I’d go back in search of you.
I would climb on shining star
And shine for all to see
“I am alive, my love, and calling
Won’t you please come back to me?”
Then would come a Goddess
my soul would be appeased
We’d laugh and play and then for me
Came the time to leave.
“Who is this girl?” they’d often ask
(After I had walked away)
I never knew and so they left
Me, alone again that day.
I would fly on mournful wings
my true love lost to me
My heart would pine and I would drift
Across the infinite sea.
And so at last I’ve struggled home
The search wrought naught for me
But wait! It’s time to build a home
I’ve found you, my lady.
