Look beyond the stars and planets
Through the vastness of deep space
To the edge of mans own vision
Travel to this unknown place
To find there’s only darkness?
The same as seen before
But it’s hard to tell the difference
When you’re on a mystery tour

Gave this quite a lot of thought... No! I cannot imagine there is nothing... :) may we always have stars in our eyes
Great poem David. It gets you to thinking how boring life must be for the astronaut. No 'landmarks' or lovely scenery to view as you travel along, just the same old occasional stars or star dust zooming by. Wouldn't you hate to just 'lose it' out there in space with no shrinks around? 10
well said, the nostalgia of infinity remains a mystery best wishes Shimon
But it’s hard to tell the difference When you’re on a mystery tour.... ............................................. It you have told very expressively, gallantly...10... Tsira
