As soon as I feel like I want to cry
I stop and realize I have gone awry
As soon as I feel there is something amiss
I stop and cry out for a Heavenly Kiss
What is the lack that draws me to tears
What is amiss that generates my fears?
How come I experience lack and pain
In a world where there is so much strain?
I believe in a Higher cause and effect
A world where there is no lack
An existence where all is perfect.
It is of course not in time and space
But it is a world with which we can interface
Through our hearts when we steer clear
Of the silk threads of the web that draw us to tears
The threads that cry of strain and pain
That our end is only how much we gain.
When our hearts are sensitive to the threads
That want to trap us in hopeless “me” dread
We choose out of the cause and effect we know
And realize it is only this world below
Designed to give us real free will
To pray and yearn to bring our life force uphill.
The effort we mobilize to so steer clear
Here in the place where life is dear
Becomes our identity for eternity
Rising above the pulls of modernity
To Hashem we cling
So that our hearts can sing
Thank you every day
For the chance to shine a ray
Of the light of Your Compassion
Into this world of action
And with You from Your Place
That Your light be seen on our face
That we are unified with You
The One and Only Who is True
Hashem Yimloch Leolam Voed
