Hello Life

I had just moved into a new apartment after a divorce.  Several dear friends were coming over for Thanksgiving dinner.  I felt blessed by the opportunity to host loved ones and a new life that was taking shape.  While the turkey was in the oven I went for a walk.  This song came through when I got back home.

Hello Life, hello Starry Night.  Hello day with the sun so bright.
Hello Joy, Hello Salty Tear.  Greetings Life. I’m glad you’re here.

Here where the nighttime breeze brushes my cheek.
Here where the mockingbird is never shy to speak
Where tulip bulbs lie sleeping, their silent beauty keeping.
Where tall blue spruce stand guard at the corner of the sky’s back yard.

Hello Life, hello Starry Night.  Hello day with the sun so bright.
Hello Joy, Hello Salty Tear.  Greetings Life. I’m glad you’re here.

Here where the fallen leaves unveil the hidden stream,
Here where the tree buds hold the seeds of winter’s dream
Where sunshine somersaults across the frozen snow
Where moonbeams beckon gently with their quiet glow.

May I entertain the notion, may I offer my devotion,
May I have the honor to declare, to offer up in humble prayer

Hello Life, hello Starry Night.  Hello day with the sun so bright.
Hello Joy, Hello Salty Tear.  Greetings Life. I’m glad you’re here.
