Where is Neil,the First Man on Moon

Where is Neil??
(Written in memory of Neil Armstrong,the first man to step on the moon 
 who died on 25.08.2012)

Where is Neil? No words from any lips.
Has he gone out side to see his Moon?
I walked outside to ask the Moon 
About her first man close to her ribs.

No moon was seen, only tears raining
                                  like August  rain;
Pale amidst patch of cloud ,
                         she wept and wept.

Neil where are you,? So deaf as tear and silence,?
                                   Whom shall I ask?
Carol Knight *  in Indian Hill 
Or Moon, the beauty in the sky?

‘One small step for man ,One giant leap for mankind’
On the breast of moon you writ;
At first step ,you felt  her inch deep shyness  ,
 Remember ,who made you sing like a poet.?

An hour of love, an era of memory;
Neil and moon whosoever can never forget
Don’t hide, go to kiss the wailing moon.
I  wish  to see  the moon smiling down
Holding Neil in her arms To give  a wink….

And soon  all will smile back 
                        at such  celestial ring.

NOTE-Shortly after the death of Neil ,his family released a statement for those who may ask what they can do to honour Neil,we have a request.Honour his example of service,accomplishment and modesty and next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you,think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.
* Carol Held Knight- Neil’s wife.

    I do not think he's on the moon .... Neil - was a brave man. We will probably never forget him - rest in peace. Good written. - / / Anne-Lise :)
