I wish you well as you embark
On your journey of  discovery,
Knowing it is a path you must walk alone.

And although I cannot aid your walking,
I pray that my love
Will light each step you take,
And my memory will bring
Each dream closer.

I am, now and always your friend,
To be found
In the sanctuary and solitude of slumber.
I hold a light to your spirit
And salute who you are.

Carry me in your heart,
As I will carry you in mine.
