Where do I belong?
With whom do I belong?
Certainly with my family
But the children are grown
and the relatives are
dispersed or gone...
Where do I belong?
With friends who already belong somewhere
with someone?
Where do I belong in this world?
Do I live to feel that I belong?
Without a sense of who I am or where I should be
There is no place to rest.
So I ask,
Where do I belong?
And the only answer I can find
is I am a Jew
and I belong to Hashem
He has chosen for me
a place to live
a husband to love
with children who grow
and friends to cherish
and people who need me
to help them know that they,
too, belong.
