The Things I Wish For You
By Fay Herridge
For you I wish great happiness
all through the coming years;
May your days be so filled up with joy
that you never shed a tear.
For you I wish true peace of mind
whenever you’re at rest;
For none has earned it more than you
who always gives your best.
For you I wish the best of health,
free from any pain;
For you deserve the best from life,
without the stress and strain.
For you have earned throughout the years
what lots of folks dream of
The admiration of your peers
and friends you dearly love;
And most of all, for you I wish
a love that’s pure and true,
And someone special who’ll be there
to share it all with you.
