“Life In A Day”
Before you were formed in the womb,
Your days were numbered and set in place.
They are the chapters of the lessons you came here to learn,
The faces of the wisdom this world has to teach you,
The gateways to the treasures this lifetime alone can bestow.
A day enters, opens its doors, and tells its story,
Then returns above, never—for no two days of your life
Will share the same wisdom
“Rabbi Tzvi Freeman”
This poem reflects what Adele freely gave to all, Her Wisdom!
