A space journey to the Moon
A small step taken by one man,
Becomes a giant leap for mankind ;
Symbol of great victory in space exploration.
A lone walk to the orchard ;
Returning with ripe hairy fruits in his hands ;
And of wounded hand and sore feet ;
Sweet rambutans for the savour of his beloved children.
TV images of the Apollo 13 landing on the Moon ;
Strange place with silver suits astronauts ;
Blaring the greatest achievement of mankind ;
A race to epitomize the glory of the human spirit.
Sweet nectar of the hairy fruits ;
Re-kindles memories of my dear Father ;
With so much sacrifice and untold miseries ;
To make all ends meets.
My Father’s journey through life ;
In giving the best for his family ;
Was far , a greater achievement ;
Than landing a man on the Moon.
