Across the infinity skies

Who knows how did you feel
During those seven minutes
Of rising warmness
In your space-shuttle
Till the final explosion

Did you think to your son?
Or to your father?
Or did you see
That river dissolving
In the terrestrial valley
You wrote us about
In your last e-mail?

And, please, tell me, Laurel,
If you still see your friend Orion
Tell me
If you still turn your eyes
Down to the earth!

When you are travelling
On your space-ship again
please keep me a seat
For that time I’ll also be shipping
To Orion
across the infinity skies!
