"We are star stuff," Carl Sagan once said.
Your body continues its existence long after its dead.
The pieces of matter you are based on
Were formed from stars now long gone.
To think, that I am parts of a star
Collected together from places quite far,
That I am something more than once thought,
Something more than what others have usually taught,
That my existence is quite more of a surprise,
Is the most fabulous reality I can quickly summarize.
