A True Scholar, Mensch, Rabbi and Friend
I opened my eyes this morning
Adjusted to the light
I was awake for sure
But my heart was in pain.
Hanukkah - the Festival of Lights
Children laughing and playing
I smiled for sure
But a light was missing for me.
A people with hope, we pray for tomorrow
The Hanukiyah glows glaringly
I look to that light for sure
Even as it shimmers, not so slightly.
There is so much to pray about and for
Without your light, Rabbi
I yearn for you and your light for sure
This light will never go out - as long as your memory lives on.
I am a husband, father and rabbi - just trying to help to make the world a better place!
