Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing; 
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom; 
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you; 
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For, 
May your arms Never Tire.
 —D. Simone
