Lovely little planet Earth
How I will miss you when I die!
Your sun, your moon,
The people I love,
Laughter and children,
Music and intelligent conversations.
But perhaps, I will be able
To explore the Universe at warp speed
The planets, the stars, the galaxies,
The colors, the lights
Beyond infinity and back again
That should take a little time.
Or perhaps, a speck of me
Might drift on a speck of earth
And join molecules,
Life will begin again somewhere in the
And I will melt into Eternity.
