Columbia Is Gone

Returning back to earth from space,
Seven heroes with dignity and grace,
The Columbia rocket destined to die,
Was seen exploding in the sky.

With the loss of seven lives,
Leaving widows of their wives,
Children lost with their dads gone,
God give them strength to carry on.

The world salutes those who lost,
Their precious lives,
Our hearts and thoughts,
Are with each wife and family.

God take these heroes,
And cherish their memories,
And for their dedication,
Set their souls free.

Poet Emmo February 2, 2003
