We look up at you for thousands of years, as we admired the beauty that shines from you. We thanked you the light that helped us see, as darkness crept in, and took over the path that we walked on.
We have written songs about you, written stories about you, and yes even poems, and yet this never seem to be enough. As we looked upon you we found you to be very mysterious which just drawn us even more to be with you.
We feel in love with you, as our hearts craved not only to see you, but also touch you, so on July 16, 1969 we left our home in order to visit our love one, who shines light into our darkness.
We reached our destination on July 20th 1969 and for the first time in Mankind History we touch you. Though your surface was dusty and cold, your beauty that we saw back at home didn’t compare to the moment we first touched you.
We had finally reached out, even with the fear of impossibilities, and touched the one we had admired since mankind first laid our eyes upon you.
