As dreams fade and lights dim


( for Leonard Cohen and others I Love)

As dreams fade and lights dim
sinews of imagination
split and cut the sky;
on every waking morning
allows  love to hear the fire of breath,
absorbing waking moments
a man in fedora hat carries on singing,
unchanged in memory,grants assistance
reflection echoed across eternal oceans,
offers tangible thread of reassurance
on the road to somewhere else,
still able to purify heart
enabling light to cast its shadow,
as we all hang on as best as possible
salvaging  what we can, delicately balancing,
keeping on loving while we are still able.
