Aging
When I Pass the Edge

Aharon Zamir

God:

When I pass the edge

Of old age

Please help me

 

Strengthen my heart

So that it doesn’t break in the battle

As the strikes of fate

Fall on me

 

Cover my body

So that it remains steadfast

Against the injuries of time

That are so frequent

 

Strengthen my pace

When I go to my daily work

And to my destinations

To wherever I shall go

 

And if my end

Is close

Or more distant

I will finish my life

With integrity and with honour

And without suffering
