Mixed Marriage

Mixed Marriage By Rick Rucker The sky seems somewhat bluer now, The birds seem a little cheerier, somehow, The grass looks a darker green, More so than I have ever seen, My disposition seems to be more pacific, As to why, I cannot be specific, I have thought about it, of late, It must have begun with my Dream Date, I had gone on a dating site, Hoping to be someone’s Mr. Right, I was hoping for a friend, So that this crushing Loneliness would end, I harbored, in my mind, What I was hoping that I would find, An impossibly perfect set of traits, Which could not be found in twenty mates! I tend to be a little “over the top,” A flaw that I cannot seem to stop, So, I went to meet, at our appointed place, There stood a Goddess, with an Angel’s face! I think we ate, I am not too sure, I could hardly talk, there seemed no cure, I realized at once, That I must have seemed the perfect dunce, Here, sitting across from me, Was as perfect a being as there could be, She was obviously too good for me, Anyone in the room could see, She had everything that I thought important in a mate, And I was going to blow it on our first date! We got through our meeting, and she finally left, Leaving me standing there, bereft, My head was all a-whirl, I had just lost The Perfect Girl! I could not, for a week, summon the guts to call, Sure that she would not remember me at all, But, to my surprise, she would give me another try, Though I could not figure why, All of this was months ago, Perhaps, the rest of this you know, We have bought a house, and moved our things, Soon, we will be exchanging Rings, We will be testing if we can, Live happily ever after, as an Angel, and a Man!
