I Wish

I Wish
I wish you:
the courage to be warm when the world would prefer that you be cool.
I wish you:
success sufficient to your needs;

I wish you:

failure to temper that success.

I wish you:

joy in all your days;

I wish you:

sadness so that you may better measure joy.

I wish you:

gladness to overbalance your grief.

I wish you:

humor and a twinkle in your eye.

I wish you:

glory and the strength to bear its burdens.

I wish you:

sunshine on your path and health to carry you on your journey.

I wish you:

peace -- in the world in which you live and in the smallest corner of you heart where truth is kept.

I wish you:

faith -- to help define your living and your life.

More I cannot wish you:

 -- except perhaps love -- to make all the rest worthwhile.

 

-Robert A. Ward
