Shuttle Atlantis

From inland to the beaches
Stood watching millions of people
That came from every corner of the world
To be part of a historic moment

Atlantis, you will be missed
You were part of an era
That so many people dissed
And yet, space exploration
Opened up our imaginations
To go above and beyond
For the sky was not the limit

You taught us so many things
That at one time was only a dream
With a thunderous soar
You opened up the sky for so much more

From medical research
To studying the earth
You enthused us to want much more
The people that flew in you
Put a smile on the faces of the old and the new
A wake up call and always on the ready
To wow us with what could be done
From a space walk to the awesome pictures of the earth
They made us marvel at the stupendous research

And every child’s dream was to fly in you
And once again make history new

The men and the women that lost their lives
To make it possible for more flights
Will always be remembered as our heroes
For they made it possible to carry on more missions

Atlantis, you ended an era of space exploration
And with that, the many answers for so much more information
