Shalom my beautiful Rebitzen Layahle, a”h, so sweet and dear
Heavenly angels are surely greeting you, from far and near.
An exemplary life you did lead
Leaving us a wonderful heritage in word and deed.
Outstanding was your friendly and kind smile
Making our lives ever more worthwhile.
Many have done valiantly and stand tall
Your smooth grace and humility excels them all.
Divine inspiration was your constant guide
Experiencing religious life with joyful pride.
Arare treasure in many ways
Resulting in many brighter and blessed days.
Reviewing your wonderful life in brief
Enables us better to endure our grief.
Born in poverty on the Lower East Side
It’s amazing how you rose to give us such pride.
Transplanting luxury for vital need
Zeal and courage led to many a good deed.
Exceptional mom, grandma, wife and community leader
No one could have been more generous and sweeter.
Looking at all the good for family and community you’ve done
Asecure place in Olam HaZeh and Olam HaBa you’ve surely won.
Your premature departure can cause resentment
As we look back, however, we’re filled with quiet contentment.
How much we miss you, no one else can fully appreciate
Losing you, all the world’s riches cannot compensate.
Enter your heavenly dwelling place in peace.
May your intervention help our blessings increase!
