    cold; lights

    I assigned my student to write a letter of thanks to her mother. She wrote:
    You are the wind which brings me cold in summer.
    You are the lights which lead me to the right way in the dark.
    I think "cold" and "lights" are not proper, how about correcting them like these:
    I wish you break away from pain.
    You are the wind which brings me cool in hot summer; you are the light which guide me to the right way in the dark. I wish you are free pain.
