Like A Word In A Poem

Image result for leonard cohen

                       In deference to Leonard Cohen

Like a word in a poem

Like a seed that’s be sown

I have cried tears for thee

 

Like a leaf from a book

Like the small child’s look

To thee, I give all my imagery

If I, If I have been cruel

I hope you see through

Forbear and forgive all my flaws

Give me time, please take a pause

 

For like a friend who only hurts

Like a fiend who only perverts

I have subvert all that is good for me

But I swear by these words

And by all that I deserve

I will make it up to thee

 

I saw a drifter on life’s road

She asked, “Can I help you with your load?’

And a bird on the wing did soar

With so little when I want more

 

Like a word in a poem

Like a seed that’s be sown

I have cried tears for thee
