    I'm sorry but can anyone tell me how to translate this greeting to my friend

    Count your nights by stars, not shadows
    Count your days by smiles, not tears.
    And on any birthday morning,
    count your age by friends not years

    Please help me !!!!!!!!!!!

    I think:
    Conta le stelle nelle tue notti,non le ombre.
    Conta i sorrisi nei tuoi giorni,non le lacrime.
    E ogni mattina del compleanno
    conta con gli amici e non con gli anni.

    I am not very confidence in what I've just translate.
    Anyway I think the meaning is that you have to see the beatiful things of the life altough the time flows.

    Hi Max,
    it's either "being confident" or "having confidence".
    About the text, I like both the original and the translation.
