The first man
 1
walked on the moon
 2
in 1969
 3
 
 
and
 4
four decades later
 5
I realized that
 6
this event wasn't important
 7
for historical writing
 8
 
 
but for the adventure
 9
painted in Armstrong's eyes
 10
 
 
-- our love wasn't infinite
 11
but it was educational
 12
 
 
Now I'm not afraid to put moons in others eyes
 13
as I let them reflect the stars in mine
 14
