    I hear optimists feel we live in the best possible place
    And pessimists fear that this case is true
    Though half-empty seems the smartest view
    She proves away theorems of vacant space

    Once I was unlucky, and she looked into my eyes
    Now I’m ready for hell and I'll jump in head first
    Or on Earth, an infinite effort to give myself worth
    Unluckiness breeds from my infinite prize

    Meant for more powerful eyes, unique and perfect is she
    And oh, how useful in court she would be
    The optimist lawyer's omnipotent ace up his sleeve
    All charges dropped, as the attorneys begin to agree

    Please don't fret about a half-empty world
    With pains and torments that can haunt it and harm it
    I know a secret, friend, as profound as is sure
    That any place with her in it, is perfection incarnate


    Written for and inspired by the love of my life
