Sometimes I wish I made beautiful things
Grasped lights and scents between my fingers
Like stardust trapped in a pink dawn

But beautiful things can come and go
They don't always drift fast enough to stay
By the shore there are things that glow

Not always I hope for beautiful things
Melodies that twirl only under moon
Shine like the red of soft memories

Hazy and golden are the fields in which
My beautiful things like childhood lie
Lost innocence and darkness have replaced

My beautiful things.

The author's comments:
“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”
? Neil deGrasse Tyson
