Out of billions and billions
Itís a terrible waste
To not have found another life,
Intelligent and curious as I

For a close encounter
Is mankindís wish and
Greatest discovery of all
My worldly thoughts fall away

At the heavenly bodyís approach
I canít help but wonder
What unearthly beauty
Transfixes my thoughts?

We communicate in languages
Different and strange,
But come together in understanding
By the universal words,

ďI love you.Ē

My greatest discovery has come to me.
I am no longer alone in the universe.

"I must create my own system, or be enslaved by another man's"-William Blake

you have brought the truth to the ears of many with this poem. I have found myself finding similar thoughts going through my own mind. I really enjoyed this.

I'm glad it struck you as it did myself when I first wrote it. It's my first attempt at Free Verse, and I didn't crash and burn, so I'm doubly happy.
