From the album Earthsong

Lyrics

From dust ye have come and to dust ye'll return
And time can be short and the same time be long
And life's but a circle, a great winding journey
If life be the circle, death be the song

Time's not a straight line, time is a circle
And though our parting may final appear
The circle of my life shall surely be followed
And one day we both may walk side by side here

All things are growing and all things decaying
The circle begins at the moment of birth
And time that is longer is not always better
And less time diminishes nothing of worth

And if your life seemed to you perfect duration
For me I'd have had you stay longer awhile
And they'll say it of me when my journey's completed
'Tis a skerrick of wisdom to add to your smile
