Voyager 1 Poem by Philip Carter


For forty years I've been travelling
Always away from home
Many years with my brother
Until we reached the rings
Then we were parted
Never to meet again
Both of us now journey alone
Into the vast expanse of emptiness
Forever moving away from home
The place where we were born
Never to return
Though my life will end
My body will continue on and on
Maybe forever
Into the darkness between the stars
Do I have a soul? I hope so
So when I die
I will be free to join my brother
Then I will travel alone no more.

    you give a human heart to the abandoned Voyager, his lonely travel away from earth and the longing to be one day reunited.
