Ma hen hamilim im lo shtikah
Tamid nos’im itan le’eretz rechokah
Migdal nofel, hagesher hu chaver
Le’od gsharim, otam ata over lashav
Ma hem hagsharim im lo achshav?
Achshav ve’od achshav
Hu zman, holech vashav
Ma hu hasipur beyalkutchah?
Me’at machar, me’at hayom,
Ani mabit, afar veyahalom
Ze mitporer, vezeh mavrik pit’om ba’or.
Ma hen hamilim - im lo lizkor
Etmol ve’od etmol,
Hazman sheya’avor itchah
Tamid holechet lefanecha shtikatchah.
WHAT ARE THE WORDS
What are words, if not silence
Always travelling with them to a far country
A tower falls down, the bridge is a friend
To more bridges – the ones you cross in vain.
What are bridges if not the present?
In the present, now
It is time that comes and goes
Back through its tracks
What is the story in your backpack?
A bit of tomorrow, a bit of today
And your childhood
I look, ashes and a diamond
It crumbles and shines in the light.
What are words - if not remembering
Yesterday, and another one,
Time passes with you
Your silence always goes in front of you.
|Words are silence when you don’t talk about the important things, running from reality. When your relationships fall apart you move to the next one. We always hope that we will build a tower forever, but when your world crumbles you prefer to stand on the bridge rather than rebuild it. |
Special people see beyond words, beyond illusions and bring their truth to build their worlds.
