When you are lonely, I wish you love.
When you're down, I wish you joy.
When you're troubled, I wish you peace.
When things are complicated, I wish you simple beauty.
When things are chaotic, I wish you inner silence.
When things look empty, I wish you hope.
I do not wish you joy without a sorrow.
Nor endless day without the healing dark.
Nor tides that never turn against your bark.
I wish you love, and strength, and wisdom
and gold enough to help some needy one.
I wish you songs, but also blessed silence
and God's sweet peace when your day is done.
This day, every day, we wish you love, peace, and soul!
