Standing at Your Gates, My Jerusalem

By Naomi Young, Saugus Community Contributor After a long year I’m standing here again, inhaling the air that is crisp and clear… and my heart fills with sweet memories, joy and thrills looking at your hills, how can I forget your domes and gates? for right here, I was shaped with joy and tears through my formative years, on these hills I played as a child fell in love, pure and mild tender and kind. Here I’ve known my best memories from home, Here I have grown and became my own. Now as in then, again and again my essence will remain in my Jerusalem. Here my heart remains and stays on your stones and mountains forever and always.
