I LEFT MY HEART IN PALESTINE

Standing at the checkpoint
You were coming home from work
Our eyes met we laughed about how the soldiers talked
… A smile of quiet dignity in that cage of shame
Determination in your eyes I might never see again

I left my heart in Palestine

We were people of no consequence quietly crying on the bus
Staring into the distance as we drove back through the dust
A spirit gently bending in this hope we trust
Nothing on our skin makes them better then us

I left my heart in Palestine

Dark hair falling gently in the soft light of the dust
As the setting sun reflected off the dome of the rock
Crackling like a gunshot a distant call to pray
Someone praising god and saying we’re still here

I left my heart in Palestine

Smiling at the words etched upon the wall
Standing in its shadow dreaming of its fall
Our hopes met like thunder in our arms entwined
Cradling the stories of those we leave behind

I left my heart in Palestine
I left my heart in Palestine
