I was once a Comet Racing through space in a blind fury Towards some unknown goal that was so much bigger than I That I stay trapped in an orbit so super massive Everywhere I go and everything I see becomes the first time I've seen it
I was once a Comet. My light burned so brightly everyone within hundreds of thousands of miles could see And they watched as I accelerated with joy and pride in their hearts Making wishes and hoping the universe grants it
I was once a Comet And because I was unable to see myself I believed them when they said I was on fire That I was some ever burning torch Destined to give my light for millennia.
I was once a Comet And as I traveled, my mass decreased Bits of stone and ice were lost as my stardust began to strike stagnant meteors and debris I began to slow My light became dim
I no longer receive the wishes of the people. Their cries of pride and joy are a ghost to me now A shadow of a phantom
I no longer feel the warmth from my travels And as my light fades And I blend into the eternal, ever stretching black sheet that is our universe I will always remember I was once a Comet.
