Yom Kippur


Once a year, we take time out,

To gather our thoughts together;

And atone our sins unworthy of honor,

On this holy day of Yom Kippur.


ĎTis a day to make repentance,

and seek forgiveness for our wrongs;

A day of resolution,

And review of our life song.


Could I have done better?

How could I love more?

How might I move towards God?

What is my life for?


And So we ponder and make solemn oaths,

And promise no more postponements;

The time has come to make right our wrongs,

For today is the Day of Atonement.
