Hope For You
I hope that, one day, you will fall in love
With fine literature, fancy paintings, expensive cheese and wine.
I hope that you find yourself, and lose yourself a thousand times over,
Every time you discover a secret talent, or reveal a new passion.
I hope you forget about finding “the one”
And focus on becoming “the one” fit for someone as wonderful as you.
I hope you believe in sunshine that heals, rain that reveals beauty,
Friends who are loyal, and one-faced enemies.
I hope you never change your style of music for anything,
But that you may keep expanding your taste.
I hope you appreciate flowers, and trees, and weeds
And know of their simple beauty.
I hope you move on from this place,
Where you have endured so much pain.
I hope you find peace in simplicity and beautifully ordinary objects,
Such as mixed cd’s, bouquets of yellow roses, and glasses of sweet lemonade.
I hope you choose to let go of the sadness weighing down upon you,
In exchange for the happiness that is soon to come.
I hope you never forget that I will always remember,
The way you made everyone around you feel loved, and bright, and wonderful…
Just for simply being alive and having aspirations.
