Prelude to the Astronauts


I saw your light from a telescope
Growing brighter as you tried to hope
But don't you dive into the mars's red
Because I know you don't know me yet

You're rotating like the earth to the star
The scintillating sun is no other than my scar
Eternal flame that slowly subdue
In a place I was burnt before I met you

You got the eyes to see the deep of me
I'll burn my sight before the night consumes
Holding your hand feels imaginary
Thus, the eternal night resumes

I wish I could reach you from space
Before all these meteors die
I wish once more I can see your face
Suppose we haven't said goodbye

If I were to rearrange earth
Would you be thinking heart?
a night for you are a day,
Andri Kurniawan
