I am The Sunrise I am the Sunset I am the Eternal Light.
My spirit flickers like the flame of a candle that never extinguishes,
In life I was as fragile as a crystal glass,
I humanized with the rhythm of life,

So many lies,
So many different versions,
All orated from the same place,

The drums still beat,
The songs are not silent,
Feet are still in rhythm with the drum,
The dance still sends the dust up into the atmosphere,
