The Circle Of Life

They are the children of long ago past.
Whose child's play and laughter, they thought would last.
They were somebody's daughter or somebody's son.
Just laughing and playing and having some fun.

Now we are the present, they are the past.
Our children are the future we hope will last.
That's the circle of life though we never know why.
But the circle of life is to live, love and die.
