They’ve been here since the beginning
that’s why they’re wise.
They’ve seen everything since it all started
that’s why they know the right path.
They’ve learned Earth’s secrets,
that’s why they offer good advice.
They’ve endured rain, fog, lava and shine,
that’s why they come in all shapes and colours.
They’ve witnessed how I’ve come to be,
that’s why they know me well.
And no matter what I’ve done
or what I’ll do,
they will be here,
as beautiful and wise as ever.
