The extraordinary life of Albert Einstein's second wife.


A wondering soul who hitched a ride beside a beam of light
In thoughts that loosed the laws of space and time
I rode along beside him after I became his wife
For both a second wedding
Me alone his marriage ending
As Albert’s life was changing I knew that so was mine
Laughing eyes that I had loved since childhood inBerlin
Our parents sat and talked as we would play
As a man he overturned the world that I was in
A world he could then not repair
From Germany to MC2
Illumination prisoner to the darkness of the day

On the backs of envelopes he’d sketch the universe
Until his weary head would start to nod
I made my contribution to this greatest show on Earth
Practical in talents
I would keep the checkbook balanced
As I watched him chase the coattails of his sage and silent Gd.

All those admirers would stand in line
It took a genius to schedule that man’s time

So don’t you ask me to explain his relativity
Though I heard him tell it hundreds of times through
What mattered was the life we shared was more than theory
A home made rich with simple things
Visits from movie stars and kings
While I kept the famous mind well fed and helped him find his shoes
