A dream (Hulum)

A dream (Hulum)
Lyrics: Marzuk Halabi
Music: Gideon Efrati
A white dove
A flower in its beak,
In its eyes an unbreakable oath:
Never to let blood be shed
Between people;

Flying high
The flapping of her wings
Create a scrawl against the clouds
That says:

If only people would open their eyes
And drink from the same source,
They could come closer together
And leave off their fighting.

If only people would open their eyes,
They would never know war again.
