So Long Marianne

Well you know that I love to live with you,
but you make me forget so very much.
I forget to pray for the angels
and then the angels forget to pray for us.

Leonard Cohen can make a breakup sound beautiful. Even though this song of goodbye contains all the bitterness and sadness that break ups do,  it is still poetry from the pen of a master.

Your letters they all say that you're beside me now.
Then why do I feel alone?
I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
is fastening my ankle to a stone.

So long Marianne.  It's time that we began to laugh and cry and laugh about it all again.
