Canadian Icon – Leonard Cohen,

this week, from life withdrew.

Meaning so much to many generations,

he sadly ‘bowed out’ at the age of 82.

 

One of the most poignant songwriters-

up there with Dylan, without doubt.

Changing the nations thinking,

yet ‘Hallelujah, his only Top 40 shout.

 

With ‘Suzanne’, the 1st song on his 1st Album,

he showed us the intensity of his desire.

But of course, he will also be remembered,

for his high flying  ‘Bird On The Wire’.

 

‘I’m Your Man’, another firm favourite,

with many a female, concert attendee,

And lots more heart-searching songs,

touched those in the same mood, as he.

 

So it’s with sadness, we say ‘Farewell Leonard’-

‘Your place in Music History secure.

You were instrumental in changing our mood,

with words from your heart, so pure.

 

So many great songs have been omitted,

in this late night tribute to you- Mr Cohen.

But your life-saving words still enthrall us,

and our love for you will keep on growin’.

 

RIP
