Perpetual youth


All you need is love, they say,
and that’s perhaps the universal truth of truths
that never can be constantly enough repeated
and renewed, reminded of and reinvigorated,
since it is the only inexhaustibility
of miracles and of perpetual youth;
since every time you fall in love
your soul renews itself and gets reborn
and even younger than it always was,
no matter how pathetically old
you always felt, since even an old soul
can get forever younger,
and the younger the more old it is.
The trick is: never be afraid
of falling into love again,
for that’s the best thing you can do
at all times anywhere in life,
which every time will be a miracle again
providing you with yet another life.
