IN NEED OF HANUKKAH LIGHTS/ EFRAT GOSH “TO SEE THE LIGHT”

 

I saw my path disappearing
Into a tangled forest,
within walls of the undergrowth
Into the bleeding ground
My feet were planted, growing roots.

And for a moment I was able to hear
Leaves teaching their song
And I wanted to go up high
To grow with them

I felt drops of rain
Collecting inside me, falling under me
And the wind is cold and depressing
It freezes me, depresses me.

For a moment I was able to reach
The end of the gray pains
And I wanted to go up high
To see the light

They say the heavens above us are blue
Full of lights.
Maybe one day I also will be able to see…
To see…

I fell to earth, in quiet
I shut my eyes, closed my heart
And I felt that I was stripped of
All my pain, all my loneliness.

And for a moment I was able to escape
Like a feather on the wing of a bird
And I succeeded to go up high
To see the light
To see the light…
