The Wall

Mourners' Kaddish

Each of us has a name given by
God and given by our parents.
Each of us has a name given by
our stature and our smile
and given by what we wear.
Each of us has a name given by
the mountains and given by our walls.
Each of us has a name given by
the stars and given by our neighbours.
Each of us has a name given by
our sins and given by our longing.
Each of us has a name given by
our enemies and given by our love.
Each of us has a name given by
our celebrations and given by our work.
Each of us has a name given by
the seasons and given by our blindness.
Each of us has a name given by
the sea and given by our death.
