The Voyager

Like a comet wandering across the heavens,
My restless heart dances amongst the stars…

Beauty I have touched,
and wonders I did see,
on the journey I have traveled,
seeking liberty.

Precious silence!

Like a lovers breath upon soft lips,
My mind burns with anticipation…

Waiting on the road ahead,
or seeping from beneath my skin,
finding new discoveries from
the fires that burn within.

Precious existence!

Like a leaf blowing aimless in the autumn wind,
My weary soul searches for a place to settle…

Where I come to rest,
Amongst the remnants of my past,
Will the seeds I’ve left behind me
leave a legacy to last?

Precious freedom!

Like a comet streaking through the heavens,
I embark on my star-crossed voyage.

    I love the way the first two lines echo the last two and I especially love this line: “I embark on my star-crossed voyage.” The whole thing is a lovely declaration for life 🙂
