An Aging To Perfection Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Aged to perfection

Aging is one of the true paradoxes of Life.

Aging is both hard and easy at the same time. The hard part has been losing loved ones, losing my hair, losing my teeth and having to take pills to keep my old body running smoothly. The easy part has been watching my daughter grow into the wonderful young woman she is today, not letting my body go to pot, and especially, not losing my sense of humor. And thinking about all that…and thinking how after so much heartbreak, I have found Love again and have been given another Gift From God… led to this….

As my 69th birthday draws near,
It has become abundantly clear
I’ll never understand Fate,
But I know what makes Life great….
It’s LOVE that has gotten me to here!
