When’d we lose our fascination?
Why let life sap our elation?
Did we think we’d go unburned
Without some brutal lessons learned?
Do these dark moments render null
All in life that’s wonderful?
I might be of a rarer view
But I just can’t believe that’s true
Yes, I’ve loved and yes, I’ve lost
But I’m still moved by winter frost
Or changing leaves or a mountain top
Those moments when time seems to stop
My baby boy, with laughs and cries,
Does this great tension symbolize
Of course there will be times to weep
But our joy also we must keep
Life must be a balanced act
For just like pain, beauty’s a fact
Don’t let the scars that life will give
Deplete your will to truly live
