Alfie - Poem by Patrick William Kavanagh

May angels watch you as you sleep,
The gentle beating of their wings caress your happy dreams.
May you grow up strong and proud and find the path that leads you to your deepest wish,
and may that wish be all that it can be, and all it ever seemed.

As you grow, may angels guard your every step,
Their joyous voices sing to keep your spirits high along the way.
May they sweep each pebble from your path,
And may their beauty shine for you, to light your way.

I wish for you a long and prosperous, peaceful life,
I wish for you a joyful journey from the cradle to the world beyond,
I wish for you a life that's filled with love and little strife,
I pray the gods will hold you, and your loving family, safely in their tender hands.
