I am Voyager

I am sailing to the stars

I am rejoicing in the stars

I am drowning in the stars.


Forty years ago I was born of thunder and fire

To Mother Earth, tethered by radio waves

Silently screaming through the cold dark void

Spinning spider silk, thin as light in the sky beyond sky

A message in a bottle adrift on the interstellar sea.


Salvete quicumque estis

bonam ergo vos voluntatem habemus

et pacem per astra ferimus


I am Voyager

I am falling through the stars

I am breathing in the stars

I am reaching for the stars


Now my eyes are blind as I cross the heliopause

Dear Mother Earth only a pale blue dot;

my instruments dying as my heart runs out.

Forty thousand years from now, if ever I am found

A message in a bottle is all there will be left of me.


Salvete quicumque estis

bonam ergo vos voluntatem habemus

et pacem per astra ferimus


Greetings to you, whomever you are;

we bring good will and peace through the stars


Pacem
