Leonard ...

Leonard Cohen
1934 — 2016

Leonard ...

there is a reason
you came into my life
and will be in my heart
long past this passing
oh, do not ask, "What is it?"
just know you were the unfailing light
that brought me the music of poetry
in the gift boxes
of your songs
a beacon of comfort
on even on the darkest nights
and certainly long before
the coming of dawn
and so adieu
so long, my brother ...
go gently past the border
of time and space
past the streets
of uneasy heartache
and love's too often
cruel and casual release
go gently on
to find at last
the final beauty
of eternal peace
