Inside Our Time: Summation in the Time of a Plague by Sarah Hershberg, age 96
I’m an older woman now, I’ve been around, I know the ropes. I’ve dreamed the dreams And hoped the hopes. And by and large I’ve been fulfilled. I wrote my songs And sang them too. You may have heard me, Some of you! I’ve loved and lost And loved and won— To wit, two daughters And a son. So yes, I’d say I’ve been fulfilled. And in fulfillment, I’ve been blessed. Yes, in fulfillment I’ve been blessed. Baruch atah adonai,, eloheinu melech haolam, Shehechianu v’kiemanu v’ higianu lazman hazeh. Blessed are You, oh Lord my god, King of the universe, Who has sustained me And brought me to this moment in time.
