An Unfinished Puzzle

The Legacy passed to each generation
And traditions of those gone before
Bestowed at first breath the very day of your birth
And is heard in the cry of the newborn.
From whence did you come this old soul renewed
To carry on in this new life?
Your destiny will slowly unfold before you
An empty canvas to be painted with light.
Death and Rebirth the Sun’s dawning and dusk
Bring balance to our ever changing seasons.
The seasons of life from infant to aged
Share the Power of transformation that’s never completed.
An unfinished puzzle, these lives that we lead
The landscape continually changing
New pieces to find and fit into place
As the balance of life & death, light & darkness,
Transition & Transformation,
Are forever and ever unending.
