i wish for you


I wish for you dreams which never end, 
and the furious desire to achieve some of them.
I wish for you to love what must be loved 
and forget what must be forgotten.
I wish you passions.
I wish you silences.
I wish for you birdsong upon awakening 
and the laughter of children.
I wish for you to resist the downtroddeness, 
the indifference, the negative virtues of our times.
Above all I wish for you to be you.

~ Jaques Brel

  1. What? There are other potters in your life beside me? Actually, the little cup is quite lovely as are your fine wishes!
