And This Is Life

Written 1991

Verse 1:
rings around the moon stars in the sky
trees are growing rings a leaf shivers and falls
the sunset is drifting into the mist
rays of light darken turn purple and then are gone

Refrain:
and this is life letting go
feeling safe and unsafe
and this is life everywhere
feeling pain and loss and joy

Verse 2:
seasons are turning inside of me
the world and I are changing
my old patterns fall away

Refrain.

Verse 3:
some days are a challenge others a breeze
the wind is collecting leaves then scattering again
trees stand as if lifeless barren and cold
they wait patiently for the touch of spring to grow

Refrain.
