May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
May you be poor in misfortune,
rich in blessings,
slow to make enemies and quick to make friends.
And may you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
I have known many,
and liked not a few,
but loved only one
and this toast is to you.
