Modern Consequences

Work Text:

In the distant future,
Your mentor
Becomes a name
Amongst the stars.
Almost as bright
As the Sun
And just as vibrant as ever.

The importance of water
To the ebb and flow of life
No matter the world
We call home
Still is held by many.
His view imprinted itself
On mankind.

His discoveries
Have become a background
For the continuing canvas
That is the vast expanse
Of space understanding.
Just as others have before him
And after.

I just simply wish
That you and him
Could have stared up
Into those stars
And seen your lingering shine
For yourselves.
