Mission Accomplished 01Feb.2003

"It's Gone! They're gone!"

I heard the voice of the Nation's cry

As Heaven's door opens wide

And the stars on high fell to earth

Seven souls renew their birth.

Aboard, Columbia STS 107

Seven humans reached for heaven

Pushing boundaries, far and wide

Accomplishing dreams from every side.

Descending upon the earth below

Suddenly appears a bright glow

Those on earth, anxiously await

The announcement of the Shuttle's fate.

Your earthly being has now departed

Family and friends, alone--broken-hearted

Sad, forlorn that you are gone

Yet, happy to know; you've reached home.

"It's Gone! They're gone!"
