Into a world which needed you My wish for you Is that you continue


Continue


To be who and how you are To astonish a mean world With your acts of kindness


Continue


To allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart


Continue


In a society dark with cruelty To let the people hear the grandeur Of God in the peals of your laughter


Continue


To let your eloquence Elevate the people to heights They had only imagined


Continue


To remind the people that Each is as good as the other And that no one is beneath Nor above you


Continue


To remember your own young years And look with favor upon the lost And the least and the lonely


Continue

To put the mantel of your protection Around the bodies of The young and defenseless


Continue

To take the hand of the despised And diseased and walk proudly with them In the high street Some might see you and Be encouraged to do likewise


Continue


To plant a public kiss of concern On the cheek of the sick And the aged and infirm And count that as a Natural action to be expected


Continue


To let gratitude be the pillow Upon which you kneel to Say your nightly prayer And let faith be the bridge You build to overcome evil And welcome good


Continue


To ignore no vision Which comes to enlarge your range And increase your spirit


Continue


To dare to love deeply And risk everything For the good thing


Continue


To float Happily in the sea of infinite substance Which set aside riches for you Before you had a name


Continue


And by doing so You and your work Will be able to continue Eternally
