poem was inspired by astronaut Story Musgrave. And of course the Columbia tragedy. Credit for the first two lines of the poem goes to him. Seven years ago next month and it still brings tears to read it.

Like A Butterfly (Columbia)

like a beautiful butterfly bolted to a bullet
beautiful and fragile but not afraid to fly
up toward Heaven through the vast beautiful sky
she breaks free and flies on her own
gliding around earth like few have ever known

the butterfly is silent as she spreads her wings
but the Heaven echoes as the Angels sings
seven brave astronauts on the journey of their life
brothers and sisters, fathers, mother, husband and a wife
each one living their own dream
but together they are one team

each one has looked to earth from high above
and thought about the ones they love
and looked up at the stars and beyond
looked back to what we have and what's yet to be done

seven astronauts unaware of the Angels on their wing
they don't hear the sad song, they now sing
they know the danger of travel in space
but not the grim task, the seven Angels face

a beautiful butterfly bolted to a bullet
beautiful and fragile but not afraid to fly
up toward Heaven through a vast beautiful sky
seven new Angels take flight
seven new stars, adorn the Heavens tonight

I dedicate this to all that have made one of mankind greatest dreams come true, space travel. Especially those who have given their lives for not only their dream but ours.To all astronauts, cosmonauts and all those who support them. God be with you. huey
