People come people go, every one,
Trespassing flowers with breezes that blow,
Some belong to lives not long then they're gone,
To live among change in memory's flow.
As Autumn's end sorrow sends Winter's test,
One by one people come bearing their gifts,
The lone trees mourn lost leaves torn from each nest,
Songs are sung life is strung between such drifts.
'Til Spring arrives so must thrive dormant seeds,
'Til fresh life, strong through strife, sends cautious peep,
While people come people go, fulfill needs,
Seeds we sow slowly grow whilst Summer's creep,
Still, one by one still we come, then we go,
Trespassing flowers as breezes that blow.
