• No Matter What

    I hope you find comfort
    in the wind and the trees,
    in the conversations you have,
    and in the books that you read.
    I hope you find courage and moxie
    in that great place that’s inside
    your own heart;
    and also in
    the constant spin
    of this ever-changing world outside.
    I hope you hold on to your awesome wonder
    through the activities you do –
    in the grins you lend to your friends
    and other people who care about you.
    But most of all:
    May you always remain true
    to that bright light that shines
    in your eyes…
    when you believe in yourself
    no matter what.
