How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?

My heart sings of your longing for me, and my thoughts climb down to marvel at your mercy. I don't fear as you gather up my days. Your name is the sweetness of time, and you carry me close into the night...
You tell me that silence is nearer to peace than poems but if for my gift
I brought you silence (for I know silence) you would say - This is not silence
this is another poem and you would hand it back to me ;))
If you want a lover I'll do anything you ask.
If you want a different kind of love I'll wear a mask.
If you want to strike me down in anger here I stand.
If you want a partner in life take my hand :))
I loved you when you opened like a lily to the heat; you see I’m just another snowman standing in the rain and sleet who loved you with his frozen love, his second hand physique, with all he is and all he was a thousand kisses deep.....
What is a saint? A saint is someone who has achieved  the energy of love

I love the songs of Leonard Cohen and great sorrow that he is gone. Regards.
