Ann Posted January 11, 2006 Share Posted January 11, 2006 I Wish” I wish you a shaft of sunlight on the gloomiest of days. I wish you a long, lazy morning with breakfast in bed. I wish that no matter how much it rains, your socks never get wet. I wish you a kiss in the moonlight from someone you love. I wish you always get a seat by a window. I wish you patience, because sometimes the world will insist on walking when you want to run. I wish you the chance to abandon the fear of dancing badly at weddings. I wish you a good memory, except for grievances. I wish you rainbows and fireworks. I wish that no matter how old you are, at least once a year you splash in a puddle. I wish that you never fear failure, for doing so makes it hard to succeed. I wish that you’re never the last to laugh. I wish you a mountain to climb and the will to climb it. I wish you passion. I wish you the vision that lets you see the good in others and the faults in yourself. I wish that you know where the fuse box whenever the lights go out. I wish you heroes. I wish that when you’re blessed with old age, you have memories to feast on and a mind that’s still hungry. I wish that no matter how tall you walk, you never look down on those around you. I wish you the strength to face your fears, to recognize them as part of yourself, and still move on. I wish that you find your own path through the forest. I wish you courage. I wish that once a year, you ditch work early and go see a movie in the afternoon. I wish you laugh lines, not wrinkles. I wish you the sense to laugh at the world and all it’s absurdities, and the wisdom to laugh at yourself before others do. I wish that you see that beauty lies in the shadows as well as in the sun. I wish that you can feel my hand in yours whenever you need it. I wish you a home as welcoming as a mother’s embrace. I wish that you always have one wish left.
