Words of wisdom for my little Lior

Aug 7, 2012

On Monday last week I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. We called him Lior and here is a little poem for him. I’ve always loved those words and wanted to share them with everyone x

 

When we are young, age has no meaning.

I never gave it a second thought

Until one day along came this old man

And this is what he said to me:

I know what it is to be young

But you don’t know what it is to be old

Someday you’ll be saying the same thing

Time ticks away, so the story is told.

I’ve asked so many questions

Of the wise men I met

Couldn’t find all the answers

No one has, as yet.

There will be days to remember

Full of laughter and tears

After summer comes winter

And so go the years.

So my friend let’s make music together

I’ll play the old while you sing me the new

In time, when your young days are over

There’ll be someone sharing their time with you.

“I know what it is to be young (but you don’t know what it is to be old)” as sung by Orson Wells.

    So little and such a Boz face already (looking like Amalia) – quite blond though!
    Enjoy the great first weeks!
