Zest For Life

So today I packed her Birthday parcel and wrote a card for her. I had a faint memory of a poem I once read which I wanted to include and fortunately found it online. I want to share it with you as well, as I really like it. Unfortunately, I did not find an English translation, so I've been doing my own ham-handed translation. Believe me, the poet's words sound far better in the original 😂 :
I wish you zest for life
As with the life-times
It is as well with the days.
None is enough for us, none is all fair
Each has its own imperfections
But sum up all of them together
And you come up with a nice sum of joy and life.
