My you live many days on this Earth. May you breath in the sunshine of the cool spring mornings. May you always raise your hands to the heavens and thank God for another day. May light always be upon your face. May you never have to face dark days. May you always see the good in others, and hope only for the best. But if you are ever let down, may it not completely break your heart. May you go on, and only become stronger.
If your heart is ever broken, I hope you take your time. Grieve. Cry. Then stand back up and collect your broken pieces and glue them back together. Realize that whoever broke it, does not deserve you. You deserve someone who will love you just the way you are. Imperfections and all. May you get back up again, dust off all remnants of heartbreak. Show us that strife only makes you stronger. And grief makes you kinder. May you prove the world wrong time and time again.
May you go after your dreams with passion in your eyes and in your heart. May you sit by the ocean and realize there is so much more to life than growing up and growing old. May you go on adventures and live out your life. Collect memories not things. Meet new people, see places you never thought could exist on this planet. May you realize that you can fall in love in more ways than one. Watch as the sky becomes covered in dark, menacing clouds. Feel the calm before the storm, the wind between your fingers, the rain drops on your face and realize that you are only human.
May you see as the sun comes up with all its magnificent glory every morning. Feel the golden haze upon your skin. Listen to the crashing of the waves, smell the salt in the air and the taste of your sunburned lips. Enjoy the little, insignificant, mundane things we take for granted. For one day you will realize, they were the important things.
May you do great things with your life. But most importantly may you live out your life doing what you love. Create, write, invent. Do not settle for a life you do not love, for you deserve so much more. Leave a legacy. Something that will remind me of you, even when your gone.
May you fall in love. Not just any kind of love, wait for a love that will last an eternity. May it be rose-tinted, but by no means blind. May your love be everything you ever wished for and so much more. May your love grow only stronger with each passing day. May you find a love that gives you butterflies, sweaty palms and trembling knees. May your love only search for your eyes. May your love be as infinite as the stars above and overcome all the hardships of life. May it bring you happiness and joy everyday. May your love be with you every step of the way. May it be kind, forgiving, loyal and bold. But more than anything may your love be yours til the end of time.
May you be 90 years old and look back on your life and have no regrets. May you look over to the rocking chair beside you to see the one you love and have grown old with. Whisper in their ear “We did it. We grew old together.” I hope that even then, you will still hold hands and kiss their cheeks tenderly, just as you did in your youth. I hope you lay in bed thanking God for such a wonderful life he has given you.
But even with all these things I wish for you, my biggest wish is that, if we do ever part ways, you’ll always remember me. May you let go of all your fears, live fiercely and never forget me.
