dans la lune

How lonely we felt
out there in the darkness
humans are we
what is the exact distance from the earth
to the moon
will we ever get home
the dust feels soft
the air breathes cold
but the closer to God are we
standing on the horizon
where no known man has walked before
I peered out into the darkness
into the tiny specks of light
and strained my eyes
as I do on earth
to see deeper and deeper still
hoping to catch a glimpse of something
I shall never see again
in this suit I wear
It was as if there was the deepest canyon
grand canyon
you could fall in forever
between us and the earth
I want to go home
I want to stay here forever
