MECHAKEH (Rita)

WAITING

Yom echad ze yikreh
Bli shenargish,
mashe'hu yishtaneh
Mashe'hu yeraga banu,
mashe'hu yiga banu
Velo yihyeh
mimah lachshosh

Vezeh yavo
kmo kav charut al kaf yad
Ze yavo batu'ach be'atzmo
Ke'ilu haya sham tamid
vechika shenavchin bo

Veze yavo, ata tir'eh
Hayadayim hakfutzot yit'archu
Vehalev hashomer
lo lehipagah
yif'am beketzev ragil
Ze yavo,
kmo shehateva ragil
Lihyot shalem im atzmo

Yom echad ze yikreh
Bli shenargish,
mashe'hu yishtaneh
Mashe'hu yeraga banu,

Vezeh yavo
kmo kav charut al kaf yad
Ze yavo batu'ach be'atzmo
Ke'ilu haya sham tamid
vechikah shenavchin bo

Hayadayim hakfutzot yit'archu
Vehalev hashomer

Ze yavo,

Lihyot shalem im atzmo,
ata tir'eh

Vezeh yavo,
atah harey yodeya
Lo hakol yetaltel otanu
Lo hakol yakeh
Uma
sheyipatach lanu
Mechakeh

One day it will happen
without us noticing,
something will change
something will ease up inside us
something will touch us
and there won't be
anything to worry about

And it will come,
like an engraved line on our palm
it will come so sure of itself
like it had always been there
and waited for us to just notice it

And it will come, you will see
the tight fists will lengthen
and the heart who's keeping itself
from getting hurt,
will beat at a normal pace
it will come,
just like nature is used to
being whole with itself

One day it will happen

something will change
something will ease up inside us
something will touch us
and there won't be

And it will come
like an engraved line on our palm
it will come so sure of itself
like it had always been there
and waited for us to just notice it

And it will come, you will see
the tight fists will lengthen
and the heart which is
keeping itself from getting hurt,
will beat at a normal pace

it will come,
just like nature is used to
being whole with itself
you will see

And it will come,
you already know
not everything will shake us up
not everything will hit us
and whatever is waiting
to open for us
is waiting
