Received a message from a friend, an old friend

Well, not an old friend, but a friend of old

And life had been no walk in the woods for either of us

But this was a worldwide announcement or should’ve been

It is a joy I can only know vicariously, yet a joy just the same

Forty-eight years had passed, how was I to explain

Maybe I don’t, maybe I can’t, maybe the message is enough

I sit in the warmth of the spirit of creation as I had never known

It’s no small celebration mind you, it is a life-changing event

AND, I never would have known, except for my friend of old

The newness of life rewarded us, each in our own way

Nevertheless, arms open to the flow of wonder and awe

Yes, magical, beautiful and unique like no other

She burst onto this plane with all of nature trailing behind her

I’m here world, look out ’cause here I come, WoooHooo!

Yeah, that’s what she said when my old friend, my friend of old

gave me the news … Welcome to Mother Earth Charley

I am grateful you are here!
