The Circle of Life

By Tracy Thomas

The morning wakes, the day is bright 

the noon walks in slowly, the day brightens 

then comes the darkness, all brightness gone 

then the moon and stars come out to play 

does the morning awake again? 

it is the circle of life 

the snowflake sails down, it is the season of winter 

then the flowers grow so beautiful, it is spring time 

ladies in bikini, the presence of summer 

the leaves are dried up and swept off their homes, autumn is here 

is it snowflake i see again? 

it is the circle of life 

a child is born, the mother cradles 

the child that grows and learns of life 

Yes mother, i bring me a spouse 

then comes death, the cries of sadness 

Is that a baby i see in your hands? 

it is the circle of life
