Hero

We propelled you toward the stars
You circled over us without fear,
Only awe and a trust in the inevitable
Realization of our hopes and dreams.

We also lost the amazing and enigmatic David Bowie at the beginning of this year which has robbed us of so many of our brightest and most talented visionaries.  May they Rest in Peace.
