One of the greatest achievements
in all of history
To launch this ship into the sky
With cheers and cries of glee
I wish to see so many things
Not just the stars and planets
Perhaps catch a glimpse of aliens
Their food and clothes and pets
Now past the birds and treetops I soar
Past the clouds and mountain peaks
I’m on this journey to explore
For years and months and weeks
Here I go through the edge of the atmosphere
One hundred kilometres high
I turn to look back at Earth once more
And to say a final “Goodbye!”
Then ever so suddenly, I stop
I feel myself start to float
In the darkness I see the stars
Glittering around my boat!
But the more beautiful I find this view
My heart gets increasingly empty
For what is it to call this home
Without a friend beside me?
