‘Tis a sad day indeed
That you have been taken away
But at least you are free
Starbound on this day

So much you gave to us
Inspired many over the years
You were much-loved
We smile, shed happy tears

Astronomy your love
Music and comedy too
As we look above
Remembering eternally you

Now with your one true love
After many years of heartbreak
This one person you did trust
Sweet music in the stars you now make

Rest in peace Teacher
Rest in peace amongst the gods
Rest in peace stargazer
Rest in peace Sir Patrick Moore
