“The circle of life: Birth to Death.”

A man and woman conceived a child.

Some people debate when the circle of life begins, but for this poem, the ring of a lifetime starts when a mother is aware she is carrying a child in her womb which begins the symbiotic bonding before birth.

Upon birth, infants around the world are, breastfed, allowing the mother to continue providing vital nutrients building upon a bond that will never break.

When the father is present during the birth, the bonding circle is further strengthened.

When family and friends are present during the last breaths of a parent, family member, or friend, the memories, and wisdom of their deceased are carried forward, strengthening the family circle for future generations with love and wisdom.
