Your dearest wish will come true,
and you will find what you have lost
once you stop looking for it.
You always do
Do not rush through life.
Pause and enjoy it.
Because it is too fast
You’ll accomplish more
if you stay focused on gratitude.
Don’t be thankless
Someone is speaking well of
you at this very moment.
Speak well of others too
Be prepared to receive something special
It’s the only way to live
Your dearest wish will come true.
