One for Leonard

Last night I didn’t say my prayers
but whispered Leonard Cohen songs instead.

They bathed my heart
in sorrow’s deepest glow

until I knew I wasn’t on my own
and then I slept.

Tonight I’ll mutter every
prayer I know

and one for Leonard

and if they sang his songs
in church,

I’d go

just once for Leonard.
