Love Letter #22: To Leonard Cohen

It only takes me one note to weep,
one train song to miss him again.
They said:
isn’t that a mourning;
12 Hallelujahs on a playlist?

I answered: it had been dark
until I let his light back in
and now, every ray
is a second chance,
every chord, a miracle,

and all I want to do
is hallelujah.
