The wheel turns and dust is scattered ,
The rivers flow and flood the land,
Winter turns to spring and then to autumn,
The cycle of hope and despair begins….
The majestic waves rise and fall,
The heart forever keeps its beat,
Seeds turn to trees and then to dust,
The cycle of hope and despair continues….
Voices die out and silence takes over,
The darkness and stars quietly watch on,
Joy turns to laughter and then to tears,
Hope and horror rule the land.
The tender shoot on thrives on rocks and stone,
The sun sets against the mountains tall,
Life turns to death and then to immortality,
Hope and despair forever live on……
