Arik Einstein

Today Arik Einstein died of aneurism,
Another ISM for our age of skepticism,
To me Arik was the voice of sanity behind Israel,
He brought to life poems long gone clear as bell,
Words of the old poets of the pure and the good,
The naïve and often easily misunderstood,
He was part of every little memory I carry,
Childhood, friends, politics, my children, army,
His songs were always there like a trusted friend,
Walking with loved ones always hand in hand,
Songs of love, beauty, no outsider can understand,
Songs like “You and I will change the world”,
Songs that will forever be and never end,
Good-bye Arik you will be missed dear friend,
