    One of my most favourite singers/songwriters. So much feelings into his lyrics and songs. (Report) Reply

    Such a nice offering to make ones dearest one immoral! Cohen not a name but a depth to dip silently. Beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Three exclamation points to celebrate the death of the narrator's love interest. You must be a callous fool and complete ignoramus incapable of reading, let alone feelings of compassion.

    Love is what makes one perfect and more so in a romantic relationship. This poem is unique where one of the partners is no more but the sentiments remain. Extremely heart-touching and poignant. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    When the beloved is gone, we compare many things that we did not notice when she was around.

    This poet is overrated on this site. His Hallelujah was the high point. (Report) Reply

    Overrated? On this site in particular? You must be kidding. He's generally acknowledged as having been a man of immense talent and insight. To site one piece as his zenith does not mean the rest is unworthy of praise.

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack, a crack in everything
    That's how the light gets in.
