Rainbow’s Child

TTTO “Yalduti Hashnia” by Mati Caspi

[Chorus]
I am a child once again,
Though I was old, and quite ill
I am a child once again,
A thrill
I am a child once again,
Future has happend, not “will”
I am a child once again,
Old man, yes, still

In a new world, these eyes
Are processing these wonders I see
What is now truth and what lies?
Future that I had not forseen
My speech is full of sighs
When once it was subtle with words
I’m learning to live in this world —
A plot slowly is unfurled

[Chorus]

Poems I read with these eyes,
Of birth and of death I have wrote
I will now cheat for the prize
To write once again, and to gloat
I am now full of despise
For all my colleagues in school
What reason is there to live?
My crimes nobody forgives

[Chorus]

Seeing through better eyes
A world that’s of magic full
Though now I should be so wise
I can hardly resist the pull
Though I’ve been used by spies
Still not a day do I regret
For this time, is a gift, this I know
I have now once again where to go

[Chorus]
