Kaddish *

2012-07-29 09.17.02I see you again
a year has passed already?
so quickly

you loved her
for the last fifty years
now she called
but you weren’t willing to come

you took an old prayer book
do you remember how?
flipping the pages,
didn’t find the right one

I stood up,
– you sat down
I sat,
– you stood up

follow me
humbly whispering words
you insensibly stood
in the corner

she is hearing

we may have different pace
in the prayer
but both of us are here

she is w/Him
He is w/us
you left,
I stayed

KaddishThe term “Kaddish” is often used to refer specifically to “The Mourner’s Kaddish”, said as part of the mourning rituals in Judaism in all prayer services, as well as at funerals (other than at the grave site – see below Kaddish ahar Hakk’vurah) and memorials. When mention is made of “saying Kaddish”, this unambiguously refers to the rituals of mourning. Mourners say Kaddish to show that despite the loss they still praise God.
