Ich wünsche dir, nicht alle möglichen Gaben., Ich wünsche dir nur, was die meisten nicht haben:, Ich wünsche dir Zeit, dich zu freun und zu lachen, und wenn du sie nützt, kannst du etwas draus machen.

 Ich wünsche dir Zeit für dein Tun und dein Denken, nicht nur für dich selbst, sondern auch zum Verschenken. Ich wünsche dir Zeit, nicht zum Hasten und Rennen, sondern die Zeit zum Zufriedenseinkönnen.

 Ich wünsche dir Zeit, nicht nur so zum Vertreiben. Ich wünsche, sie möge dir übrigbleiben als Zeit für das Staunen und Zeit für Vertraun, anstatt nach der Zeit auf der Uhr nur zu schaun.

I wish you time

I do not wish you all sorts of gifts. I just wish you, what most people don’t have: I wish you the time to be happy and to laugh and if you use it wise, you can make something of it.

I wish you the time for your actions and thinking, not only for yourself, but also to give away. I wish you the time – not to hurry and run, but the time to know how to be content.

I wish you the time – not to simply just pass, I wish that you have enough  time to be amazed and to trust, rather than just having to look at the watch.

I wish you the time to reach for the stars, and the time to grow, to mature. I wish you the time to hope anew and to love. It makes no sense to postpone this time.

I wish you the time to find yourself, to see the happiness in each day and each hour. I wish you the time to forgive. I wish you: to have time to live.
