On that lonely night I thought,
was there more than this I sought?
Pictures, clouds, lights up high;
unreachable speckles in the sky.
Then I clicked on him and heard;
maybe with a single word;
this man changed my life.
"Consider again that dot."
"All right," I thought,
"It’s worth a shot."
A world away from ours, yet still our own;
the most astounding thing I’d been shown.
In that moment, I could see
what I was truly meant to be.
So much more to the world than we see,
every moment a discovery.
This is for Carl,
the best teacher there could be;
and that’s what Carl means
