for you...and Leonard Cohen

Yes I will think of you and only you and you will know not -
the soft tug that tugs at your heart from time to time - is mine.

it does not matter if your ears hear not when I call your name
your soul hears..looks back suddenly wondering who called -anyhow- I know this sounds insane -
but how many times have you stopped in your tracks
remembering that you have forgotten something
what it is you just cant tell -

sometimes your hand involuntarily brushes your cheek
though its my tears that fall
you have not seen me in ages and I have not come to you
and yet the sharp pang you feel evrytime for no reason at all?

Trying to shrug it off does not help..the feeling does not leave you.
- It will never leave you.
because its me you..on you..and forevermore for you..only you...


Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah


  1. smiles. you speak of love on such a level that is is often not a cool article last night on couples in love and how when isolated in rooms...if one couple thought of another it caused the biorhythms of the other to increase...they did it with 36 couple and all same result...

  3. Thats the only way Love could ever be for me Brian. Its either this or nothing for me.
    Not the convenient mockery of love for arrangement of sorts people believe in nowadays and call it love.

  4. Wow. Just wow.
    Very powerful. .... .... ....

  5. very touching..feeling of pure,deep & true love.
    Every man has got his own mental world,
    his own mode of thinking, his own ways of
    understanding things, and his own ways
    of acting. Just as the face and voice of every
    man differ from those of another man, the
    mode of thinking and understanding also
    differs. One should be in tune with the
    mental vibrations or thought vibrations of
    another man. Then only one can easily
    understand another. (Swami Sivananda).
    Have a good day.. reagard

  6. One of my favorite songs! How can any soul not be stirred by those lyrics>? that tune?
    Your tribute to Cohen is touching...

  7. i love how you describe real love here...and where else could we go to when everything goes wrong...? love how you link it with the song with the different stories of falling and finding back.
