Stardust

Falling Star

You were around before I was
I never thought you’d be gone before I was
I watched your stars reaching for the heavens
And I mourned with you when they fell
Maybe I took you for granted
Maybe you’ll find a way to rise again
Today I mourn again
Watching Atlantis descend
Goodbye NASA
