Rocket Man



He’d always been a dreamer
So often had his fingers burnt
But still he kept on dreaming
They said he never ever learnt

So many years a dreamer
Everything to him unreal
He hid away from everyone
Nothing could he feel

Til finally he reached it
The point of no return
The rocket had run out of fuel
He had to crash and burn

At last he saw a future
Looking through windows at the sky
The nurse said gently “please wake up”
But he didn’t even try
