Last Night

August 26, 2012

Last night
I gazed into the sky
And saw the moon
Last night
I silently cried
Life ended so soon.

Last night
I saw where you stood
And I just knew.
Last night
I realized I could
Touch the moon too.

Last night
I said a payer
For your soul
Last night
I was aware
Your life was so full.
——
RIP Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

    A fine way to recall his life in your fine lines of poetry.


  2. Such a great piece to remember such a magnificent man, RIP Armstrong. I fell in love with him despite never seeing him, I guess some characters in this world are made to be loved and always written in history forever.
