Poem of the Day: My Heart has Become a Temple by Shye Ben-Tzur

My heart has become a temple
I am a worshiper of love.

On my darkened pupils,
you engraved your seal
everyplace I turn to
my eyes long for your beauty

My religion did not bring me closer to you
in the house of prayer I did not hear your voice
Only by the look of my beloved
My soul is filled with your holy spirit.

My heart has become a temple
I am a worshiper of love.

From Shye Ben-Tzur‘s upcoming album. Translated from Hebrew by Roi Ben-Yehuda.
