The Inescapable Circle

What luscious calm nature brings
With her soft breeze and sun
I can see those green trees with their smiles
Welcoming the new life to the world
They sway from side to side
Until they can play no more
How gorgeous they look in the glimmering light
About to begin their journey forward

Hear the crackle of the dried up leaves
Under your feet they break
The once merry and proud
Now at the brink of gloom
They no longer hold the smiles once seen
No longer can they sway
Under the feet of life
They lie there to pray

See the branches of the barren trees
That knew not the meaning of sorrow
Now standing alone in the night
Dark and alone amidst the white snow
Lost everything, the laughter and life
That the tree possessed
Now hoping for a new life
With the good about to come

Life as it turns and folds
Gives light to the world
The little white blossoms and leaves
Once again for us to behold
The leaves, once again, sing and dance
In the breeze that nature blows
Hoping once again to live
Within the beautiful land of sorrow
