I wish you dreams,
and a tremendous will to realise some of them.
I wish you to live with passion and to share your passions.
I wish you to love what should be loved;
I wish you to forgive what should be forgiven;
I wish you to forget what should be forgotten.
I wish you silences and a love of being alone.
I wish you birds’ songs when you wake up.
Flowers blooming and releasing their heavy perfume.
The gentle sound of rain splashing on dry earth.
Sand- and pollen-carrying winds.
And children’s laughs.
I wish you to love being with others.
I wish you to listen and hear other people’s dreams.
I wish you to resist indifference,
lack of ethics,
and broken dreams.
I wish you not to sink.
Most of all,
I wish you to be yourself…
