I am old and I have had
more than my share of good and bad.

I've had love and sorrow, seen sudden death
and been left alone and of love bereft.

I thought I would never love again
and I thought my life was grief and pain.

The edge between life and death was thin,
but then I discovered discipline.

I learned to smile when I felt sad,
I learned to take the good and the bad,
I learned to care a great deal more
for the world about me than before.

I began to forget the "Me" and "I"
and joined in life as it rolled by:
this may not mean sheer ecstasy
but is better by far than "I" and "Me.”

“I made a resolution never again to whine or be disagreeable. For why should anyone have any need to be unhappy when they have what I have.”
Meryl Gordon, Bunny Mellon: The Life of an American Style Legend

“I’ll have to put trust in you and God, write it nice, friendly, non-gossipy. I’m simple, here I am, do it like that. Be kind. Calm it down, Calm it down.”
Meryl Gordon, Bunny Mellon: The Life of an American Style Legend
