In my mind, it's all settled:
I'm surrounded by the ones I love
and the things that tickle me:
my hazelnut candle, castanets,

make me feel at home.
It doesn't matter where we plant our roots,
just as long as our branches
reach toward the sun.

Be with us as we roam and ramble
then bring us back to the things that matter.
Help us to bloom where we're planted
and fly free in our minds.
Most of all, set up a home in our hearts.

-  Ruth Williams
