I am drawn to you , MY WALL
Not by mere sense of duty
Or truthfully, your beauty
For should one gaze at you
With only naked eye
And not with love, as I
Perhaps they see no more
than weathered stone
Survivng all alone.
Yet, I perceive beyond your
The anguishd cries to G-D
Which centuries of hate
Have brought within your gate.
I see ensconced within your crevices
My people’s prayers and dreams\
That tenderly you cherish and embrace
And time cannot erase;
Then I rejoice,,,, for this I know
Just as you defy the foe
In every generation’
So will the Jewish nation
Ever proudly stand
IN OUR G-D GIVEN LAND!
