Wherever you are,
Whatever you’re doing,
May you always be brave.
Don’t be scared to be daring;
Never timid or ashamed.

If the enemy arises,
And stands tall in your path.
May you ever be careful.
You have not the strength to overcome.
Alone, you’re too vulnerable.

When those who hate you rise against you,
Keep your eyes fixed straight.
You cannot stop for idle souls.
Help those who are thirsty for truth.
The voices of others form deep holes.

Wherever you are,
Whatever you’re doing.
Please, always be safe.
A weak body is an empty vessel.
A fragile mind will surely break.

If you ever feel lonely,
Deserted and abandoned.
Just remember where your home is.
Don’t turn away those who love you.
There are always arms waiting open.

When you are tempted to cut and run,
To leave behind these mountains of love.
I ask you to remember.
Look back on the things you held so dearly,
And the starlit walks in late September.

Wherever you are,
Whatever you’re doing.
I beg you, be caring.
See the wounds that are still slow healing.
Hear the heart that still beats despairing.

Wherever you are,
Whatever you’re doing.
There is still love.
Abounding more then there was before.
It conquers all and every hurt.
There is love.
