Gentle Hand

Since I’ve been such a long time without updating this blog of mine, and I just discovered this stunning song from Ofra Haza and I wanted to share, I decided to do it here ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s worth listening, believe me. Also I made a new blog in which I’m only going to write in Hebrew – my very basic Hebrew – so that I can practice. So if you are learning Hebrew as well, or you aren’t and only want to take a look, here is the URL.

English

She had gentle hand
Nobody dared to touch her
Both her lips are charmed as scarlet
They were made only for kisses
Oh, Mom, They were made only for kisses

Oh, she had a black eye
Light and darkness bump into it
On her forehead light shivers
Dew of childhood is full of glory
Oh, Mom, Dew of childhood is full of glory

Oh, and there will be evening, and there will be night
Quietly shadow to shadow met
Then she gave him her heart
She gave him her whole heart
Oh, Mom, She gave him her whole heart

Oh, She had gentle hand

A song that makes me immensely happy

It feels like it touches my soul…

Reminds me of my happy and serene childhood… Just my mom, my brother and me at home, and mom would put Choros on the stereo system, while my brother and I were playing…

My mother was always very calm with us. Never yelled. And very patient too. Thank you mother for the education you gave us ๐Ÿ™‚ I love you.

Please, take a moment to listen to this song, at least 5 seconds of it. I guarantee you won’t regret.

song: Jacob do Bandolim – Vibraรงรตes (1967)
