Make a wish. No, make many wishes

I read this poem at a baby naming ceremony recently. I just think it’s beautiful and I wanted to share it.

Wishes for a Child”

May you know the gift of friendship

Feel the sun upon your face

May you win displaying dignity

And accept defeat with grace

May you marvel at the wonders

Of nature and the earth

May you value education

And know your own true worth

May you live and love with honesty

And do the thing that’s right

May you stand up for the helpless

And sleep in peace at night

May you thrive upon a challenge

And sing and dance and laugh

May you know the joy of happiness

And follow your own path.
