But most of all, I wish her love.

Long-shot-arama: 13 years ago, I read a poem at my daughter's christening and then promptly lost the piece of paper I'd read it from. It was all about the things I wished she would have in her life, and I'm 98% sure it ended with "but most of all, I wish you love". Ring any bells?

I have no idea where I got it in the first place: it may have been the internet, but it was more likely a library book or church newsletter or something. I read it from a photocopy of a typed page.
I'm pretty sure it was more prose than your standard rhyming poem. I think it mentioned joy and laughter and smiles, amongst other un-remembered things.
I was in an emotionally-wrecked place at the time, and it was a very traumatic day for a whole host of reasons - I barely remember it, other than I sobbed dramatically all the way through because she smiled gloriously at me as I started to read it.
I would dearly love to find it again but google hasn't helped me.
