I know the beauty
that touches the heart
with life-giving strength.
I have the faith and trust
to see the invisible things
that my heart knows instinctively,
to penetrate the hidden veil
that sight cannot pierce with
wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder.
I live each moment wholeheartedly,
with a most exuberant love of life.
It puts a rich sparkle in my eyes,
adding heartfelt joy to my days,
putting a lilt in my steps, filling
my heart with immortal hope.
