Who knew all the sufferings of the world
taught me how to swim in the dark
Pave my way in butterfly motions
rowing in the captivating darkness
and breathe clear light sprays
until the night goes out and a day strikes.
שֶׁיָּדַע כָּל סִבְלוֹת הָעוֹלָם
לִמְּדַנִי לִשְׂחוֹת בְּתוֹךְ הַחֹשֶׁךְ
לְפַלֵּס דַּרְכִּי בִּתְנוּעוֹת פַּרְפַּר
לַחְתֹּר בָּאֲפֵלָה מַצְמִיתָה
וְלִשְׁאֹף רְסִיסֵי אוֹר שְׁקוּפִים
עַד יִכְבֶּה הַלַּיִל וְיַפְצִיעַ יוֹם.
