Make the best of it

It is mathematically provable
that we cannot be alone
in this nearly infinite universe
as every day brings discovery
of another Earthlike planet

but they are light years away
and might as well not exist
as far as my time goes. I know
this is it for me, one short life
on this little blue ball, watery,

half-lit by its little yellow star.
