Yossi Green Feat. Shlomo Simcha “Here With Us”

A little while ago, I was contacted by a Lechtigeh (luminous) Yid on the phone who told me that he had read the book Manginat Chayei – מנגינת חיי - and had determined from the writing that the author (Yours Truly) would be sensitive enough to a request that he had for a special song. We subsequently met and with deep emotion he related to me that his precious wife Michal A”H had passed on some time ago and as he was ready to take his oldest son under the Chupa, he wanted me to write a song that would help him and the family somehow to sense and share her presence at this momentous event.
Naturally, I was deeply moved and immediately contacted the well-known and immensely-talented Mrs. Miriam Handler to write lyrics for the composition that was beginning to emerge. With tremendous סייעתא דשמיא the composition was done and approved, arrangements by the dynamic arranger team from Israel of Yitzy Berry & Eli Klein were ordered, and the search for the performer who had the voice, the intensity, the sensitivity, the diction and the experience it would take to interpret a song like this (Anyone get the sense I like this guy?) and came up with one person who would fit that role perfectly… Shlomo Simcha, who proceeded to exceed all expectations. A short while later we entered the studio for the singing and background vocals and when Shloimy was done singing and all the gathered listened to the recording together there wasn’t a dry eye among us… It is not often in our music world that one feels what we all felt and experienced on that day.

Here With Us – Lyrics
You’d laugh – and we couldn’t help
but laugh along with you
Your smile belied the struggle you were going through
And, despite of all the fears and years of pain you felt
Your concern was always for somebody else…

We marveled at your – unfailing, upbeat attitude
The way that you faced the world
with grace and gratitude
The Emunah that defined you – never asking “why?”
Has been our source of strength as time goes by.

And you’re here with us
Although we cannot see
You shed a tear with us
While praying that we see
The hopes you had for us turn into a reality
Your dreams for our future – come to be…

And, as you dance on high
We know you’re smiling with us
And you cheer us as we soar
We can’t see you – but you’re here with us
And will be ever more…

In the Shechina’s glow
Where everything is clear
And you know what the pain was for
You are full of joy because you’re here with us
And will be ever more.

Accepting Hashem’s decree with such tranquility
You sought to do acts of kindness with humility
And your never-ending Simcha
came from deep within
And your aura never failed to draw us in

The lives that you touched were many, and the void is great
You were so young – but left so much to emulate
And we’re grateful to have had you, and to feel the love…
That still is radiating from above.

And you’re here with us
Although we cannot see
You shed a tear with us
While praying that we see
The hopes you had for us turn into a reality
Your dreams for our future come to be…

And, as you dance on high
We know you’re smiling with us
And you cheer us as we soar
We can’t see you, but you’re here with us
And will be ever more…

In the Shechina’s glow
Where everything is clear
And you know what the pain was for
You are full of joy because you’re here with us
And will be ever more.
