Excerpts from IN SPITE OF - Good-People & Memory Fragments
Lyrics and music: Naomi Shemer
Open your eyes and look around
Winter is in the past and spring will now abound.
In the field there by the roadside wheat already grows
Do not tell me “impossible” for what I will expose:
There are good people along the road
Very decent folks indeed.
Theses good people they know the way
And will help you to proceed...
Buhs Inge, Glazer Lilian, Dobrovarski Anna, Antolovich Bradley
From captivity to freedom,
From bondage to liberation,
From sorrow to joy,
From mourning to jubilation,
And from darkens to light.
Childhood years, sweet childhood years,
Forever will you stay alive in my memory,
When I think of your time,
I become so regretful and grieving-
Alas, how quickly I have grown old!
