the girl that was

"Suggest a name", said the swallow to the dreamy reed on a summer afternoon.

The reed merely swayed. The swallow flapped its wings and circled around, creating ripples.

The reed pointed to a flower

The swallow understood. It picked up the flower and offered it at the altar.

"Suggest a name", said the swallow again, " a name that will lift sadness, a name whose tune will promise hope. A name that will assure the stars to shine brighter".

There is no proper english substitute word that means your name. Perhaps just like there are no substitute human beings.

Assume your full share of responsibility in the world. Achieve the greatness of spirit.

I know you will do it.

Work hard. Pray. Help.
Keep happy.

Best wishes and prayers
