These bells on the wind
Greet this old world
Morning to you

I’ll call you my friend
I’ll tell you what I
Know to be true

I’ve seen the strength
Your Mom will give to you
It is the truth

Old trees on the hill
They’ll watch you grow
Wiser in time

I’ll draw them with you
We’ll make them strong
And color them fine

I’ve seen the love
Your Dad will show to you
Patient and kind

Notes

Wow! For the second week in a row I have occasion to write a song to welcome somebody new into the world! This is a pretty rare and splendid occasion. Eneko Paz is the excellent son of Tama and Miguel, my dear old friends and sound making buddies. His parents have graced many of these songs with their bountiful musicality, and now they get to make a whole new kind of harmony as Mom and Dad.

Eneko Paz, I wanted to tell you a few things with this song. The first is hello, I am your friend. I’m going to be nice to you and help you understand the world as best I can. I’m going to do fun things with you and tell you dumb jokes, sing silly songs, and draw pictures with you.

The other thing I want to tell you is that you hit the jackpot with your parents. Trust in their love and goodness. Their love and goodness will be here for you forever.

I don’t know when I’ll get to see you for the first time, but I can’t wait to meet you. When I see you, we’ll sing in the sunshine and our song will carry like bells on the wind.

~M.E.
