AHAVA AD HASHAMAIM

AHAVAH AD HASHAMAYIM 

Chalfah shanah t'mimah
me'az hi ne'elmah
hak'tantonet
yom echad ra'inu otah yotzet
levushah me'il tzahov
ratzah lah bar'chov
vesharah "sheyihyeh li tov"

Hish'irah rak michtav
predah me'em ve'av
hak'tantonet
hi katvah: ani kvar yaldah g'dolah
nemashim kvar ne'elmu li
bubot kvar nishberu li
nigmar
kol kach maher avar
k'mo aviv nifla katzar

Mah yihyeh itach rachok mehabayit?
Eifo at yaldah sheli?
(x2)

Chikinu basalon
achar kach bachalon
lak'tantonet
bechol ha'ir chipasnu, vechol echad
chakarnu vesha'alnu
bad'rachim shotatnu
mi yode'a? mi otah ra'ah?

Mi yode'a madu'a
afah im haru'ach
hak'tantonet
et kol ne'urai higashti lah
kol mah she'hi ratztah hi
natati velak'chah hi
hakol
gadlah li al birkaim
ahavah ad hashamaim

Mah yihyeh itach...

LOVE UP TO THE HEAVENS

LOVE UP TO THE SKY

An entire year has passed
since she disappeared
the little one
one day we saw her going out
dressed in a yellow jacket
she ran in the street
and sang "may I be well"

She only left a letter
farewell from mother and father
the little one
she wrote: I am a big girl now
my freckles have disappeared
my dolls have broken
it's finished
it passed so fast
like a wonderful, short spring

What will be of you far from the house?
Where are you my girl?
(x2)

We waited in the living room
after that in the window
for the little one
we searched in the whole city, and interrogated
and asked everyone
we loitered on the roads
who knows? who saw her?

Who knows why
she flew with the wind
the little one
I gave her all of my youth
all that she wanted
I gave her and she took it
all
she grew on my knees
love up to the heavens

What will be of you...
