Hope beyond hope

(1126)  Balechile more gan shonabe

You'd said You'll sing a song to me;
The days I count, expectantly.
With smile sweet, You had assured:
"At once I shall return."

Many times has Earth gone round its path;
So many Falls and Springs have passed!
You did not come, You did not sing;
Anxious for Thee, fake webs I weave.

The saplings, they've grown into trees;
Mountains eroded have become ant-heaps!
Time's reckoning has reached its limit;
Still I do believe footfall approaches.
