Out in Space

In a place so dark and cold, 
What possibly can life behold?
In a place as vast as space, 
Can there be another race? 
It’s hard to think that anyone is out there thinking too,
If aliens really do exist, tell me please, where are you? 
So for now, we’ll look through our telescopes, 
Aliens if you’re really there, know you are hope.

Select four pairs of words (or more) from the word bank to create a rhyming couplet that tells a story in the form of a poem. While your write, keep in mind that:

1. The couplet must be a complete thought or should tell the full story.
2. The couplet must have the same or similar number of syllables.
