The Circle of Life

We enter this world, a blank slate

Ready to take on whatever our fate

Life takes its toll

It’s not all rock and roll

Some of it can be quite droll.


We grow

We know

At times we sink quite low


We learn to love

And feel our hearts break

And grieve, and laugh and cry and fake

How we feel, put on a brave face.


We grow

We know

We live our lives in tow.


We raise families and win and lose friends

We work jobs, retire and then


We reach a stage, we lose independence,

We can’t make decisions become so dependent

On the humans, we brought into this world

To decide our future, no crystal ball.


Those humans,

They show

The love we need to know

Returning the favour, (we helped them grow)

They help us go.
