I believe that spring downpours are comforting
That raindrops and diamonds come from heaven
Snow and pearls come from clouds and
Clouds are made of wishes.
I believe that kindness is found in forgiveness
That strength grows out of rawness
Conviction is the path and the goal and
Laughter is the only medicine
I believe that love causes smile wrinkles
That a smile is a blown kiss
Wrinkles are a tribute to experience and
Peace comes from smile wrinkles
I believe that time has bond us
That its rhythm stirs the heart
Memories linger long after good-bye and
That which has been shared cannot be nullified
I believe that we are dwellers of discovery
That discovery takes time
Memory and wishes guide us and
Laughter and healing lead us home.
