Sarah Zipporah, z"l





All my heart, all my soul and all my might
But I do not accept this
You are the One True Judge
But I do not accept this
My heart aches across 3000 miles
But I do not accept this
My eyes weep for her milk
But I do not accept this
My scream catches in my throat
And I do not accept this
Closed eyes that have never opened
And I do not accept this
Small wings beating against her womb still
And I do not accept this
Small feet that will never walk begin to fly
And I cannot accept this
El Rachum v’Chanun
You are the Compassionate One
Merciful and Just
And you have gathered up our Bird under Your Wings
But we cannot accept this
For fear our souls would break
Our world would crumble to dust
And she will truly be gone.
Adonai our God
Bring comfort to our friends
Bring strength to their steps
Bring hope to their tears
Bring love to their home
Until we can walk again
Please carry us through this dark day
Until we can sing again
Please help us to hear our children's voices
Until we awake again
Keep her safe, keep him whole,
Grant them a r'fuah sh'lema, a full healing
To a world that will never again be the same.
Adonai our God
Grant Eternal Rest and Peace to our Sarah Zipporah.
May we live as she did
Surrounded by love all the days of our lives.
