Heaven Bound
Judith Goff

Heaven Bound

Seven souls would board a shuttle
Seven people, each his own,
Separate wishes, aspirations
What would happen wasnít known

Each a hero in their own right
On a mission for mankind
Never knew, anticipated
What this journeyís end would find

Was there time for contemplation?
Did they register the fear?
Was there even time to realize
That the end was very near?

As they plunged on through the ether
Something changed the hand of fate
Like a star from heavenís outpost
The craft began to separate

In that instant of blinding fury
Seven souls became as one
In Godís hands they all were gathered
Safe with the Father and the Son

Now the world will mourn their passing
As times before, with sight and sound
Resting in the certain knowledge
All of them were heaven bound

In Memoriam 2/1/2003
