Before Sheva | A Poem by Roli Edema

Before Sheva Poem


Those symbol measures

Have always had a meaning 

But now they're forming a significance

You'll probably never quite understand

 

Seven eight nine

Before long, your footprints are next to mine

Paving the way to an apparent future

Look and behold, even the time has been told

 

What makes a theory a fact?

Meticulous testing, cause not correlation

Your presence is rich, no anomalies

 Scientifically satisfactorily

 

Before Sheva I raised the call

Before Sheva dusk came to dawn

Life isn’t as complex as I thought it was

Celine said it's inevitable

 

We love those friends

Who are proud to be our friends

When all is stripped away

It’s not a popularity game

 

Some things are cemented eternally

Too good to be true wasn't true

How sweet is theory

That has proven to be a fact


Sheva means seven

A meaning beyond multitudes

Before Sheva I lifted my eyes

Before Sheva my eyes lifted my heart
