Everywhere I am, there is Jerusalem.

Wherever I find myself, I carry you inside like a seed,

Never to be born, never to die.

And then You return, without warning, as though You had always been there, in Your favourite chair, watching over me, gently rocking the night away.

How could I have ever doubted You?

To whom do I sing my praises, if you are not there?

To whom do I owe the miracle of my survival, when so many have lost their lives and sanity?

If you are not there, how can I show gratitude?

If these are meaningless twists of fate, tempt me not, judge me not.

Let my little orphan mind dream on pillows of gold, and sleep return like ships to shore,

Let me not be tortured, anymore.

Where Am I?
