Bir'gaim shel atzevet k'shenafshi mitatefet

Zot haytah t'kufah yafah

at hayit chalomi he'enakt li osher

Zot haytah t'kufah yafah...


In moments of sadness when my soul wraps itself
I have your picture from the days of your youth
in moments like these my soul hopes for
the memories that you left behind

That was a beautiful time
of joy and love
you were my world and granted happiness
you were my dream and granted me happiness

The life that we were thrown into,
we went apart from one another
you moved from here to an unknown place
and time went by
our youth went by
oh how everything is erased
(only) the yearning remains

That was a beautiful time...
