The Romantic Space Shuttle Accident


Like a shooting star I flew with an inspiration
To see our Mother Earth in Action
How my eyes described the beauty from afar
Is like how I met you from the start

You caught my eyes and I burst into wonder
How to catch a comet with your joyous laughter
Tools for apprehending the motions of space
I can't help thinking of your lovely face

Pens and Poems to write this Diary
Of love and hope for you not to worry
No days and nights for me to care about
The chance to see you again is what this is all about

I plan upon returning back to my Homeland
Not to expect a tragedy is about to come
And a rock from nowhere struck my shuttle
Astounded by the shock I started to struggle

Like a shooting star I am landing with a dream
Just to feel Mother Earth embraces me within
How my eyes teared upon describing my last picture of you
Like how I met you from the start, I will always love you.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
