Happy Hoping Blues + Hope (II)

Happy Hoping Blues

I took this photo this morning, made this meme this afternoon.
I took this photo this morning, made this meme this afternoon.
I’ll be going home tomorrow, glad I’ll see my loved ones soon.

Nobody lives for ever, that is something we all know.
Nobody lives for ever, that is something we all know.
But we can hope till the last moment, & then it’s surely time to go.

The blues were made for sorrows, & sorrows are a part of life.
The blues were made for sorrows, & sorrows are a part of life.
But the truth can set us free, & put an end to strife.

I’ve got these happy hoping blues, because I love their love & mine.
I’ve got these happy hoping  blues, because I love their love & mine.
& with these hoping happy blues, I know we’ll all be just fine.

My attempt to translate a short & incisive intro in English that I shared (with my emphases) yesterday . A complex task: I note here – & ask what it says about Israeli-Hebrew – that there are no words in it for ‘colonist’ or ‘colonised’ – click on the pic to enlarge.
