About the Poem

Sure, engineers have been stereotyped as nerdy, desperate, and dateless. But years ago, when I sat in class reading that Dilbert, I just snapped. Engineers aren't all sad and lonely, and just because I was sad and lonely didn't mean that everyone else was.

I wrote this poem to prove to myself that love can be found anywhere, even soldered to a circuit board.

Very witty and funny and obviously written from the heart. Iím an engineer too (of a different kind), but you donít have to be one to appreciate it.

An Engineer's Valentine

I was alone and all was dark
Beneath me and above
My life was full of volts and amps
But not the spark of love

But now that you are here with me
My heart is overjoyed
You've turned the square of my heart
Into a sinusoid

You load things from my memory
Onto my system bus
My life was once assembly code
It's now like C++

I love the way you solder things
My circuits you can fix
The voltage 'cross your diode is
much more than just point six

With your op-amps and resistors
You have built my integrator
I cannot survive without you
You're my function generator

You've changed my world, increased my gain
And made my math discreet
So now I'll end my poem here
Control, Alt, and Delete

I am an NMR spectroscopist, and let me say that this one was right on my frequency. I can't tell you what a kick I got out of your usage of electronics as reference to your mood. Fantastic. If you have any more electronics related poems I would love to see them.
