Your dearest wish will come true,
                                        I hope 

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.
