Comet ISON Streaks Toward the Sun (NASA, Marshall, 11/19/13)
Before the sun began to shine,
I felt the warmth of your love.

Before the moon spun round,
I enjoyed your glowing smile.

Before the oceans were filled,
You dried my silent tears.

Before the mountains rose up tall,
I was protected in your shadow.

Before the ancient forests grew,
I slept in the glade of your love.

Before any of the busy forms of today,
I lived a life full of peace.
I remember your plans for me.
Your mysteries fill me with hope.
