Promises Meant To Keep

Finally got to watch the redo of The Lion King.  I have to say that I don’t know if it’s the passing of time or what, but, watching this again was just wonderful.  I really enjoyed the show very much.

A Voyage To Africa - Sunset of A Lion Kinged

Promises Meant To Keep
by Michael Doyle

Sunset on the African plain
Where each day proves life is not in vain
New life begins with all of its ritual
All of this magic seemingly habitual

A birth announced on a canyon rim
Sunbeams light their blessing on him
As all of life is held in reverence
The certainty of this being divine in preference

From smallest to biggest, life is as we share
The feelings of fairness, love and care
Begging for a walk on bit of a part
Printed as it is in the middle of every sacred heart

Slipped minds feign at giving respect
There's protocol challenged in its neglect
Fireflies light the evening's sky
As the gods whisper their reply

Calling on falling stars of tomorrow
Where happiness is lived beyond sorrow
As youth wakes, their parents sleep
And we parents see the promises meant to keep
