LEONARD COHEN - Forgive me ?



I stand swaying in dead air
crying a bucketful of dry tears
as deep as the Ocean
Hearing music so soft, so silent.
For a man  who reached his end.
Did his soul touch yours ?
Were you there at his concerts
or like me stone deaf busy ?
I stand in silence now
Begging forgiveness with dry tears
for staying away so long.
Hearing only Hallelujah 
recognising a single rhythm
That filled a hundred songs

Leonard Cohen 
please forgive me ?
