Jerusalem

Sweet Jerusalem

What did they do to you!
Claiming your love
But cause you none

But sorrow and pain

Sweet Jerusalem
I heard you crying that night
Your frail beautiful frame
Trembling… aching… diminishing…

Your sad eyes avoiding mine

Sweet Jerusalem
I want to crawl towards you…
To kiss the aromatic scent

Of your ancient alleyways

 

Fall on my knees… repenting…
At Damascus gate, howling
I failed you… I let you down

Sweet Jerusalem

I want to embrace

 

That blue stripy dress of yours

Bury my face… bury my shame

Weeping

Asking your forgiveness

I’ve witnessed the crime

Sweet Jerusalem
I want to kneel down
Put my arms around you
Caress your weary brow
And murmur
Pardon me my dearest
I am sorry sweetheart
xxaa
Sweet Jerusalem
I want to untangle your jet-black hair
Comb your gorgeous curls
Adorn your plaits with rainbow ribbons
And whisper… habibti
You look stunning today
Habibti… now show me

Your most charming… much missed smile
