Fallen Friend

Up high above, I lived up there,
But now I’ve fallen, and it's just not fair.
I miss my friends up in the those trees.
I miss the birds, the squirrels, and bees.

And now down here, what is there to do?
Look around for change, or a fancy shoe?
What was that sound? Something fallen behind?
As I turn around, what do I find?

Oh, it's another pine cone! A friend has come to stay!
We don't have to phone, we can hang out and play!
This will be swell...this will be great!
I'm glad that I fell, cause now i've found my mate.
