A Wish

A Wish
(To a friend on her 16th Birthday)

You’re sixteen years today
Your life lies on ahead.
May you travel on your way
With a sure and steady tread
May joy be thine, may you surely climb
Each rugged path and hill
May you never step ‘till you reach the top
That’s the heartfelt wish of Bill
