Delicate emotions.
Forgiveness grants hope,
Inspires joyfulness;
Kindness lingering—
Memory nurtures one.
Patience quickens reverence;
Speaking tenderly uplifts vision,
Welcomes xenium— youthful zeal.

Youthful zeal; xenium welcomes,
Vision uplifts— tenderly speaking.
Reverence quickens patience;
One nurtures memory,
Lingering kindness.
Joyfulness inspires,
Hope grants forgiveness.
Emotions delicate—
