Private temple (מקדש פרטי) / Poem by Balfour Hakak (בלפור חקק)

Poem by Balfour Hakak
Private temple 
Each person in his own way.
Brings both bread and salt
To the Temple of his life
Seeks a new way
In the other side of the fence
Sacred path
To his white Temple
He aspires some day
To return to the gate
of the ancient garden
He wants to give the world a Temple
House of hope and dream.
Let his temple for everyone.
Temple of love and peace
To the whole world
מקדש פרטי
כָּל אָדָם בְּדַרְכּוֹ
מֵבִיא שְׁתֵּי לֶחֶם וּמֶלַח
אֶל בֵּית הַמִּקְדָּשׁ שֶׁל חַיָּיו
מְבַקֵּשׁ דֶּרֶךְ חֲדָשָׁה.
רוֹאֶה מֵעֵבֵר לַגָּדֵר
מְסִלָּה קְדוֹשָׁה
לְמִקְדָּשׁוֹ הַלָּבָן.
שׁוֹאֵף בְּיוֹם מִיָּמִים
לָשׁוּב מֵחָדָשׁ
אֶל שַׁעַר הַגַּן
הוּא רוֹצֶה לָתֵת לָעוֹלָם מִקְדָּשׁ:
בַּיִת שֶׁל תִּקְוָה וַחֲלוֹם
לָתֵת מִקְדָּשׁוֹ לְכֻלָּם
מִקְדָּשׁ שֶׁל אַהֲבָה וְשָׁלוֹם
לְכָל הָעוֹלָם.
