Two More Hebrew Poems: Cautious Hope
I've added two more of Timora's poems in the original Hebrew, written a little more than half a year before she died. Each poem, in its own way, is cautiously hopeful. The first describes a night spent praying; the very fact that she was still pouring her heart out to God tells me that she still believed it was possible He would grant her wish. She wrote the second soon after performing in her theater class's last production, when her life seemed to be taking a turn for the better.
