“Hold the rosemary,
Listen my child,
I offer you fortune, I offer you clarity.
“Give me your hand
Give me your life
Give to me money and I’ll stop time in the sand.
“Your lines are your roads
Your hand is my map
You travel from far, it is written in codes.
“You are newly a wife
You have child at home
Money you have, complete is your life.
“Long is your love,
The branch stretches past the trunk,
Cherish your man, innocence’s dove.
“Let loose your worry
Relax your shoulders
Your fate is blessed, you write your own story.
“Your head and your heart
Guide you as brothers
Trust your family, remember beginnings, remember your start.
“I give you the Gypsy blessing of three
Alms to sweet Saint Sarah
Light through fortune’s shadow, may she guide you on your journey.”
