Can we finally begin now?
Become who I know you to be
Your soul knows the way
Be content with the smallest gestures—
the sun rising, a cup of vervain, the hummingbird returned
Smile instead of clench, even when Life has you under her thumb
See how many times you can fall in love,
Say thank you, because the whole of it is a trunk of treasure
Leave your fingerprint on as many heart surfaces as possible, the rough and the smooth
Trust Me in the valley, I see the mountaintop ahead.
Remember, I go wherever you go,
Love is stubborn that way.
You were created to rise
I am rooting for you
Today is as good a day as ever,
