What A Life - Poem by margaret haig

What a life, what a great step, he said,

To walk on the moon, while we were in bed;

Watching the tv, and in the newspaper too,

About that Neil Armstrong, oh so true.


What a dream he fulfilled, to go so high,

Traveling in the rocket thru the night sky;

Way far further than anyone could do here,

Go around the earth seems so far yet near.


And now he's gone, passed from this life,

please God, be with this man's family and wife;

I would never ever want to travel so very far,

And! I would rather stay low, and travel in a car.

To hear of this very brave man to travel to a place of unknown
Not many get the chance to experience anything so magnificent
