It wasn't all that easy when you up and walked away.
But I'll leave that little story for another rainy day.
I know your burden's heavy as you wheel it through the night;
The guru says it's empty but that doesn't make it light.


So let’s drink to when it’s over
and let's drink to when we meet.
I'll be standing on this corner
where there used to a street.

-- Leonard Cohen

You can listen to a conversation about his collection of poems, Book of Longing, on Fresh Air (1/1/07).
