Blessings on Sadness

For when you are too sad to remember:

May your sadness be felt as deeply as it needs to be
And may it lift in its proper time. 
 
May you understand that just because some people can’t be there at your sadness
Doesn’t mean they don’t love you.
 
May you be able to take pleasure in the pleasures of those around you
Even when you can’t feel your own.

And may you not lose hope in the possibility of your own happiness,
Even when it is out of your line of sight.
