Sincerely, L. Cohen

There was a time I would have played
Leonard Cohen till break of day.
Famous Blue Raincoat fifty times
to trouble more my troubled mind.

A voice so mournful it confides:
I have been with you to the dark side.
We are both prisoners on the dark side.

Furthermore, I hear him say,
tomorrow won’t be a better day.
It may not be a better day.

I pour the wine a little after late,
reach for Songs of Love and Hate.

Sincerely, E.B.

    1. Many thanks for your comment, I agree about the early ones being the best. There are times in life, like tonight, when I can listen to nothing else – a true poet.
