*On the anniversary of Israel becoming a nation (May 14th, 1948)*
My limbs are broken, cut through the bloody bone,
The sky above my only ray of hope,
It’s where You left and now I watch and wait,
My eyes spill tears yet disappear within
My skin. I’m old and haggard just let me die,
My lungs held on but filled with hopeless sighs,
My voice deemed not my own is lost
I moan and wail, but I am never heard.
Your voice rings rich low piercing through the clouds,
I hear your song stream far across the sky,
And feel your smile stretch over valleys wide
You’re here, You’ve come for me, I cry at last,
Your arms outstretched wrap me from east to west,
I’m full of you forever finally home.
