Circle of Life

The circle of life
came to a close
too many times
this year

To one, in April
a sorrowful death
prolonged, painful
the doorway closed
before the mourners
could bid good-bye

The other, in August
sudden, coincidental
young, shining a light
on potential lost
where life was not a
burden, but a journey

The circle is coming again
to one who is ready
desirous to meet
with her lord
to go home

She is waiting
for the circle to close
So we can go on
in the circle of life
