A Wish

I WISH thee length of days
Filled full of all that's best —
Long years to earn thy bays,
Then twilight time for rest.

I wish thee love and joy —
Love that is strong and sweet —
Gladness without alloy;
A heart with thine to beat.

And then, when Earth has given
Her best and most to thee,
At last I wish thee Heaven —
Then come again to me!
