Longing (גַּעֲגוּעַ) / Poem by Hava Shacham (חוה שחם)

 
Poem by Hava Shacham
 
 
Longing
 
One day we will meet
And maybe it’s going to be night
I wish in September
In the evening
When the light is soft
And the wrinkles melt
 
One day we will meet
Maybe in another space
That has no title and no name
That’s a big secret
Magnificent and terrible
Which was never created
 
 
גַּעֲגוּעַ
 
בְּאֶחָד הַיָּמִים נִפָּגֵשׁ
ואוּלַי יִהְיֶה זֶה בַּלַּיְלָה
הַלְּוַאי בְּסֶפְּטֶמְבֶּר
בִּשְׁעַת בֵּין עַרְבָּיִם
כְּשֶׁהָאוֹר רַך
וְהַקְּמָטִים נְמָסִים
 
בְּאֶחָד הַיָּמִים נִפָּגֵשׁ
אוּלַי בְּמֶרְחָב אַחֵר
שֶׁאֵין לוֹֹ תוֹאר וְלֹא שֶׁם
שֶׁהוּא סוֹד גָּדוֹל
נֶהְדָּר וְנוֹרָא
שֶׁלּא הָיָה וְלֹא נִבְרָא
 
חוה שחם
