Ode To A Proton
by Shay Heather Davies (5/19/98)
Oh proton, how your positive charge makes me blush!
I watch you from a distance, and my heart just turns to mush...
If only I was a neutron, we could frolic for awhile,
and then my dear I'm sure, I would wear a permanent smile.
But alas, I'm an electron, and I must watch you from afar,
so far from where you are.
It seems to me that my fate is sealed,
but how can my love not be revealed?
My mass will not be complete until you are mine,
so give me this chance, and show me a sign.
Some day our gazes will meet, and I'll see your eyes,
and we will meet together and neutralize...
so until that day, farewell my opposite attract,
my love for you will always stay intact.
